Non-Indigenous people have been known to amplify pan-Indigenous messaging for their own benefit, as seen with the Trans Mountain pipeline.

Indigenous peoples are a broad and diverse collection of confederacies, nations, clans and tribes. As a Blackfoot person, I often reflect on the stories, lessons and conversations I share with my grandparents and broader community as I navigate the world. These values that we share as a family, community and nation inform the decisions I make, even as I continue my education thousands of kilometres from our home on the Blood reserve southwest of Lethbridge, Alta.
