The Indigenous Peoples’ Solidarity Movement of Ottawa (IPSMO) is a grassroots community organization that is committed to supporting indigenous struggles for justice, decolonization and self-determination.

We started organizing in 2006 in support of the Caledonia land reclamation, and are currently most active in supporting the Barriere Lake Algonquin, and working to end violence against indigenous women and girls.

We have regular orientation sessions for people who are or think they might be interested in organizing with us in support of indigenous resistance.
