Indigenous Peoples Atlas of Canada
Welcome to the Indigenous Peoples Atlas of Canada Giant Floor Map. This resource will assist you and your students in understanding the past, present and future of Indigenous Peoples in Canada. There is a wealth of information and diversity of stories and voices on this map; however, we recognize that no resource will ever be able to encompass all Indigenous voices and stories. The Royal Canadian Geographical Society (RCGS) also recognizes that the stories told here are not ours to tell. It is for this reason that we have worked collaboratively with a number of Indigenous and ally educators and organizations from across Canada to create this resource. We highly recommend that you use this resource as a starting point and reach out to Indigenous communities, organizations and groups in your area to learn more and continue to work toward reconciliation.
The Giant Floor Maps are available on loan for 3-week periods throughout the school year and by special request during the summer. The map will be shipped in a large bag that also includes a teacher’s guide, cards, and additional materials.

- A teacher’s guide
- Associated cards and materials for the activities in the teacher’s guide
