Mythbusting: Indigenous Peoples get everything for free

June 18, 2024 — 

As part of National Indigenous History month, we take a look at dispelling some myths that may be held around Indigenous Peoples. Watch our first video with Niigaan Sinclair, graduate chair and professor in the Department of Indigenous studies, columnist and sought-after voice on education, politics and reconciliation. He debunks the widespread myth that Indigenous Peoples receive everything for free, including education, health, and housing.

Uncover the reality behind these falsehoods and understand how treaties, meant to be mutually advantageous, have left Indigenous communities struggling for the same rights and privileges that Canadians often take for granted.
