Treaty 7

This year marks Canada’s 150th birthday since Confederation, but not every Canadian feels like celebrating.

Many Indigenous and non-Indigenous people are speaking out against the Canada 150 celebration, with some using the hashtag #Resistance150. It was created to push back against celebrating 150 years of Canada when the history of the land is much longer for Indigenous people.

Canadian prisons currently provide their indigenous inmates with arts programs that help them connect with their cultural identity, but Australia has taken that idea one step further.

Calgary is known for its diversity of cuisine selection and it can now add Indigenous Comfort food to the list.

Today is International Women’s Day and as part of this celebration, women across the world will be protesting the economic, social and political discrimination they face on a daily basis.
