- Information to clarify thinking and dispel myths and stereotypes about Indigenous Peoples of Canada.
- Establishes linkages between historical events and present-day issues.
- It covers Anishinaabek history and culture, demographics and today’s social and legal issues, sovereignty and treaties, and traditional teachings and storytelling.
