Most of us know that Indigenous people were the first people to live on Canadian land. But we aren’t all aware of, is that when European immigrants came, they took more than just their land. They made efforts to take away their culture, religion, sense of community, and identities. Learn more about the hardships Indigenous people have endured in the past and present during this Ted Talk.

Olivia Grgich attends Centennial Public School and is in grade eight. She has a passion for human rights and equality for all everyone and is happy she could learn more about Indigenous communities and share that knowledge with other people.

Facilitator: Kevin Watt
