Self-Care Guide

As you move through Native Studies content, you may find some of the material emotionally challenging or triggering. If you’re Indigenous, the underlying colonial foundations that are discussed in Indigenous Studies material will likely have impacted and continue to impact you and your community in different ways. You may find that some of the content will bring up memories of these kinds of experiences, which can make engaging with the material especially difficult. 

The Faculty of Native Studies recognizes that this is often the reality of doing Indigenous Studies work, we have experienced it ourselves, and we want to encourage you to do what you can to care for yourself as you work through this material.

We invite you to read our Self-Care Guide to discover some ideas and strategies that you may want to try to help you navigate emotionally challenging or triggering material.
