Each of us holds an individual and collective responsibility to respond to the Truth and Reconciliation’s Calls to Action and to seek an understanding of Canadian and Northern BC First Nations as the traditional Indigenous people of the land that is now occupied by modern day Canada. Section III provides perspective on how one First Nations community fits into a larger network, Colonialism in Canada, and how to participate in providing cultural safety through the practice of cultural humility.

Please note, section III contains sensitive material and discusses anti-Indigenous racism, colonialism, and oppression. As a result, it also discusses the horrific impacts of Canadian settler colonialism on Indigenous peoples, including genocide, cultural annihilation, language loss, forced displacement, intentional infection, residential schools, incarceration, murder, and abduction.
