On #NationalIndigenousDay here's a my top 10 things I've learned for my fellow settlers . Some simple, some not.

1. Settler is not a slur. It's literally what we are. My grandparents settled in Alberta in 1913.
2. Indigenous should always be capitalized
3. Don't use "our Indigenous" or "Canada's Indigenous" That's possessive and not appreciated by many
4. Don't use terms like spirit animal (new agers), tribe, pow wow (marketers) etc
5. Learn about the treaty status & history of your area. Treaty #, unceded etc
6. Understand that Indigenous people are not a monolith. There's a wide range of practices, traditions & politics across the continent
7. Learn how colonialism & rascism causes poverty, water scarcity, incarceration, child apprehension, birth alerts, foster care & on & on.
