Resource List: Land, Treaties, and Land Acknowledgement

This list of resources was put together by Ontario Presents and SPARC, with consultation from Cynthia Lickers-Sage (IPAA) and Clayton Windatt (Aboriginal Curatorial Collective).

The resources below focus on Land, treaties, and land acknowledgement. Additional lists are also available on the topics of:

While it is impossible to have a comprehensive list of Reconciliation resources, we hope that this will be a starting place for those looking to learn more about the history of Indigenous people in their area, and about building reciprocal relationships with Indigenous communities, people, and artists. It is a living list, and will be updated as we come across new resources. If you would like to suggest a resource, we welcome you to email
