Welcome!

Welcome to the Indigenous Self-Education Resource!


This resource was created to aid in the reduction of unpaid emotional labour experienced by Indigenous students, staff, and faculty. Unpaid emotional labour is when someone asks an Indigenous person questions about Indigenous history, culture, or governance when the answers could have been found by researching it themselves.


This resource includes links to external information resources. Please feel free to read this resource as a whole, or use the table of contents as-needed to find specific resources.
