This resource was created with an Indigenous Advisory Team. We asked Indigenous educators across the country for advice and then brought together a team of 10 highly qualified and knowledgeable advisors to develop the resource. The advisors contributed articles, photographs, ideas, expertise, wisdom, and perspectives; they oversaw every aspect of the resource.
