In May-June, Scholars Portal will be exhibiting at Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences 2017. The theme, “The Next 150, On Indigenous Lands”, pays tribute to the 150th anniversary of Canada’s Confederation, the rich indigenous history of the land on which we stand, and the future of Canada as a diverse and multicultural society especially as we strive to incorporate the recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. This also coincides with National Aboriginal History Month in June. To honour this theme, we’ve gathered some resources on Indigenous Lands from across Scholars Portal services.
For more information, visit the GeoPortal, journals, and books platforms.
