We Are Indigenous
View the video above to learn how to navigate the NCCIE website and find resources for teaching and learning in your classroom.
"NCCIE is created by Indigenous peoples:
- to look at Indigenous education from distinctly Indigenous perspectives;
- to acknowledge the creativity and perseverance of Indigenous peoples in passing on knowledge to future generations;
- to amplify community voices and foster connections so that people across the country can learn from one another about Indigenous education; and
- to enhance opportunities for sharing and direct collaboration amongst Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples.
NCCIE is hosted by First Nations University of Canada, which has a 40-year history of being Indigenous-owned, operated, and controlled. The Centre is grounded in principles of respect, reciprocity, and relationship, which are understood in Indigenous ways and honoured according to Indigenous protocols and customs.
First Nations University of Canada is situated on three campuses in the Province of Saskatchewan, including one in Regina on an urban reserve of Star Blanket First Nation (for more, go to fnuniv.ca)."
A Few Words About ‘Indigenous’
"‘Indigenous’ is used as a general term when referring to First Peoples, recognizing that most people prefer the use of the name of their nation, such as Haudenosaunee, Nehiwayak, Anishinaabe, etc. The use of “Indigenous” is in no way intended to make generalizations about the distinctness and diversity of the original Peoples of Canada or the world. “Indigenous” is meant to be inclusive of First Nations, Métis, Inuit, non-status Indians and other rights holders classifications.
In addition, the phrase “Indigenous education” is used, recognizing that the many First Peoples of this land define and use the term differently in accordance with their language and cultural context."
National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation

Indigenous Studies Portal
The Indigenous Studies Portal is an initiative of the University of Saskatchewan Library. As of January, 2011, the iPortal had more than 25,000 records including photos, anthropological field notes, diaries, correspondence and other textual documents.
Local Partnership: Tradition + Transition
Whether its exploring the ‘deep history’ of Nunatsiavut’s archeological resources, or creating an Inuktitut children’s book series, the main goal of the Tradition & Transition Partnership is to build lasting connections between generations of Inuit and academics working in Nunatsiavut. Elders, youth, senior researchers, and graduate students all work together under a common goal, to better understand and help strengthen Labrador Inuit culture, identity, and leadership.
Deepening Knowledge Project - OISE
The Ontario Institute for Studies in Education at the University of Toronto launched this Deepening Knowledge web resource and directory with resources to assist teachers and teacher candidates to incorporate Indigenous Peoples' historical and contemporary perspectives across the Ontario Curriculum. Linked resources include curriculum resources by topic and subject area and recommended literature for students.
