Perspectives From Urban Indigenous People Across Canada

Not My Territory* is a series about urban Indigenous perspectives, driven by the people who are part of the country's fastest growing populations. I spoke with 10 Indigenous people from across Canada, all with varying experiences of being urban.

Our series name recognizes that while some Indigenous people live in cities that overlap with their community's traditional territory, this isn't always the case.

At the same time, these individuals have also been called on to be experts, to provide insight on all things Indigenous, but often it's not their place to do so. Not My Territory* gives them a platform to speak for themselves and consider what it means to be an urban Indigenous person in an era of reconciliation.

Looking forward to reading through all of these, but I especially loved the illustrations. I was glad the intro included an article to the Redbubble page of the artist, Nalakwsis.
