Canada commemorates September 30th as the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, also recognized as Orange Shirt Day. This significant occasion aims to raise awareness about the historical and ongoing impacts of Canada’s Indigenous residential school system.

In honour of this important day, we would like to highlight scholarly research from the University of Toronto Press (UTP) journals in Indigenous studies. This body of research covers a wide range of topics, including exploration of racism in the Canadian media, Indigenous petitioning during the World Wars, and the question of confidentiality and Residential School records.

Special Issues

UTP has additionally published several special journal issues that delve into a wide spectrum of subjects within Indigenous Studies, such as Indigenous Language Teaching, Learning, and Identities, Indigenous Cinema and Media in the Americas, and The Indigenous Eighteenth Century.

We also encourage you to read the following articles, curated from a wide range of our journals, that are #FreetoRead until September 30th.
