Authentic Indigenous Voices Matter

The most important thing you can do as an educator is to make sure that you are sharing authentic Indigenous voices within your classroom. This means the books you share with your class are written by Indigenous Authors.

Always check to see if books are written by Indigenous Authors.

Indigenous authors will always tell you what nation they belong to and where they are from.

It is our cultural way of being.

If it is not an Indigenous author talking about Indigenous topics, it is taking away the voices of Indigenous people.

 

So please if nothing else, always use Indigenous voices within your classrooms.
