This is a two hour workshop that introduces people to the basics of
indigenous solidarity. We explore some of the history of indigenous
resistance, key concepts, terminology and how to do indigenous solidarity.

This workshop is intended for everyone who is interested in being
principled allies to indigenous people. This workshop was designed by, and
will be presented by, non-indigenous people.

“I don’t believe in charity. I believe in solidarity. Charity is so
vertical. It goes from the top to the bottom. Solidarity is horizontal. It
respects the other person. I have a lot to learn from other people.”

– Eduardo Galeano

The Indigenous Peoples’ Solidarity Movement – Ottawa

The Indigenous Peoples Solidarity Movement – Ottawa (IPSMO) is a
grassroots organization that directly supports indigenous peoples in
diverse struggles for justice. We also work within communities to
challenge the lies and half-truths about indigenous peoples and
colonization that dominate Canadian society. The organization is open to
both indigenous and non-indigenous people, and focuses on local and
regional campaigns.

As we act in solidarity with indigenous people, we build relationships
where we can learn from indigenous cultures. By doing this, we can further
decolonize ourselves, and so learn to better challenge the racist and
colonial ideas that dominate Canadian society.

We provide support to actions and campaigns for Indigenous sovereignty,
self-determination, defense of the land, environmental protection,
cultural revitalization, and the honouring of treaties and agreements.
