The Indigenous People’s Atlas of Canada is a new  resource created by Indigenous leaders that gives a first-hand account of their history to K-12 students. The resource contains a map without traditional provincial borders. Instead, swaths of green, purple, and yellow represent Indigenous traditional lands. In addition to the map, the four-part atlas describes at length the history of First Nations, Métis and Inuit groups. The atlas was created by the Royal Canadian Geographic Society and paid for by Crown-Indigenous Relations in order to teach young people the truth about Canada's past.
