Actions You Can Take to Help the Indigenous Community for National Indigenous History Month and Beyond

Grieve but also CELEBRATE our audacity and amazing culture! Hold space in your heart for all of what you’re feeling and processing yourself. Hold space for what we are going through. And help us to celebrate our beautiful culture. We are still here due to our incredible resilience and connection to Spirit and Nature. Join us in our celebration, not just in grief.

Buy your #OrangeShirtDay t-shirt from a legitimate Indigenous source that gives proceeds to appropriate organizations.

Make a contribution to a local Indigenous organization like Anduhyaun (Toronto’s only Indigenous women’s shelter and healing lodge, both of which helped me) or Minwaashin Lodge (I’ve worked with these women in Ottawa).

Take the Indigenous Canada virtual course offered by University of Alberta (Canada) or Coursera (U.S.). Free or if you want you can donate or pay for the certificate.

Amplify Indigenous businesses – June is National Indigenous History Month here in Canada. You’d be surprised how impactful a simple share over social media with your personal recommendation, or a referral to a friend can be.

When purchasing spiritual supplies or gifts for loved ones, stop buying from non-Indigenous new age stores (most of the sage you get from there is unethically harvested anyway). Seek out Indigenous sources, like Hummingbird Spirits (run by Nenookaasi, featured singer on my latest single) or Tribal Spirit (where I send everyone for drums/drumming supplies).
