First Nations and Inuit Map (Native and Common Names)



This map is the most comprehensive ever created of the First Nations of Canada. It utilizes the original and true tribal names for each Nation, and shows where each Nation was originally, before contact with Europeans. It includes the names of the Nations who survived this incursion, as well as those that did not, honoring the memory of those who have fought tenaciously to hold on to their homelands. It is a visual reminder of those who have called this land home since time immemorial, creating a sense of pride for First Nations people, and a better understanding for the non-Native public. To Aboriginal First Nations peoples, this land will always be our ancestral homeland.
