Legacy of Hope & Heart Gardens

  • Downloadable resources for system leaders and school-based educators to deepen their understanding and empathy to inspire action to improve our relationships with Indigenous Peoples today. Access to these resources will help support learning as we celebrate National Indigenous History Month in June and National Indigenous Day on June 21. Districts may want to act upon the Royal Canadian Geographical Society’s recommendation to create a Heart Garden in honour and memorial of these children.
