A note about language:

Throughout this guide, a variety of words are used to describe resources relating to courses taught at University programs such as Education, Health Studies, Art, Languages, Sociology, Native Studies, and History. This includes materials written by, about, and for people of Aboriginal, Métis, Inuit and non-Aboriginal backgrounds and cultures.

The ongoing legal use of the word "Indian" by the Government of Canada (ie. The Indian Act) necessitates its inclusion in our guide, despite our awareness of any offense it may cause. Also, American and international resources tend to use the terms "Native American" or "American Indian" rather than Aboriginal or First Nations. This is important to keep in mind when doing research, as word choice greatly impacts catalogue and database search results.

For further information see the Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada page on terminology.
