National Aboriginal History Month

on Thursday, 01 June 2017. Posted in Blog

June marks the beginning of National Aboriginal History Month in Canada. Here are some Alberta magazines you can read for lists of ways to celebrate indigenous heritage and stories what about needs to be done to help the country reconcile.

Next week, AMPA members along with hundreds of publishers and writers from around the province will participate in the Writing Stick - an event hosted by the University of Alberta. The two-day conference will foster conversations on editing and publishing Indigenous stories and writers. 

Avenue Edmonton 


In 1969, Lillian Shirt gained international attention after putting up a tipi in Edmonton's Churchill Square to protest aboriginal living conditions. Nearly 50 years and a lifetime of activism later, Avenue Edmonton has her story featuring stunning photography from Colin Way. 

New Trail 


More than 150,000 children were removed from their homes. The government wanted to ‘civilize’ them. The church wanted to ‘save’ them. What really happened to Indigenous people has been Canada’s shameful secret for more than 150 years. In the wake of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s report on residential schools, the New Trail spring 2017 issues takes a dive into how we are only just starting to come to terms with Canada’s true history.



Situated on the traditional lands of the Niitsitapi (Blackfoot) and the Treaty 7 Nations, which include the Siksika, the Piikani, the Kainai, the Tsuut’ina and the Iyarhe Nakoda, Mount Royal is working to more closely reflect the ground on which it stands. In its fall 2016 issue, Summit covers the University's new Indigenous Strategic Plan, outlining a path to 2021 and reflecting on 18 months of intensive consultation on campus and in the community.

WestJet Magazine 


In its June 2017 issue, WestJet Magazine highlights the ways and places to celebrate indigenous culture throughout Western Canada. 

The Yards 


 With the launch of the summer 2017 issue on June 22, the Yards hosts a discussion on Edmonton's next 150 years. How can we build a narrative of Edmonton that truthfully includes the indigenous histories that we have marginalized in the past? Will creating more truth offer Edmonton a way toward reconciliation? Join them for a timely conversation as Canada prepares to celebrate its 150th birthday.
