It’s a bit of a tough sell for visitors to Canada’s traditional places, especially when they’re the subject of an ongoing dispute with the federal government.
But for visitors who want to learn more about what it means to be an indigenous person in a post-colonial country, a new guidebook is a good place to start.
“The First Nations in Canada: A Guide to Canada” is a companion book to the new First Nations Tourism Guide, which was published last year.
“It’s a good opportunity to learn a bit about the country, the First Nations culture, and to understand the relationship between the people and the land,” said Sarah Sorenson, who heads the Canada First Nations Association.
“I think it’s a great opportunity for visitors and it’s also a great place to learn about what’s going on in the communities, how to get involved in the government, and get involved on the front lines.”
The guidebook has been a hit with visitors, who often find themselves in a difficult position when trying to find a reservation in the country’s remote communities.
It’s also been a major boon for the tourism industry, with many First Nations and Inuit communities saying they’re able to book reservations in the guidebook.
Sorensson says there are more than a million people living in First Nations Canada, but she says they’re all struggling to find their way in a society that is changing and shifting.
She says some are choosing to stay in the capital, Toronto, while others are looking to explore the remote areas.
Sorensons group has been working on a guidebook for several years and says the project started with a desire to document some of the most important aspects of life in First Nation communities.
“We had this notion of this book to really document the people that lived in those communities,” she said.
The book covers such topics as culture, religion, food, clothing, and language. “
If you’re an Indigenous person and you want to know what it’s like to live in a place like this, that’s what this is about.”

Searsons group also aims to get a sense of what it takes to be a First Nations person.
“This book really has all of the information that is needed to understand that,” she explained.
“So we know that we’re not the only people living here, we know we’re a part of the larger community, we have to know our rights, we do have our own land, we are connected to the rest of the world, and we are all Indigenous people.”
Sorenons group is trying to create a guide that’s more accessible than what’s currently available online.
She said she hopes that it will make it easier for people to connect with other First Nations people and to get to know the people who live in their communities.
The guide comes as Canada prepares to host its first national conference on indigenous peoples and culture in May.
It also comes as First Nations leaders across the country are urging people to get out and explore their cultures.
In Canada, First Nations Chief Serge Gagliano and other leaders have issued an urgent call for people who want a deeper understanding of First Nations to go see a First Nation expert.
“Let’s start to get people in the door and really understand what this country is and where it’s coming from, and how it can be changed,” he said.
The conference is expected to take place in Ottawa and is expected a week later.
Sarenne Scott, the co-founder of the First Nation Association of Canada, says the new guide is important because it’s important to get an understanding of the culture and history of First Nation people.
Scott said she was excited to see the guide come out, especially since her own family is an Inuit.
She also said it’s time for First Nations governments to address issues of reconciliation.
“One of the big things that we hear about is the reconciliation issue.
It is a big problem in our communities, particularly because it affects the way that people interact with each other,” she added.
“In my community, there’s a lot of tension about what people call the ‘First Nations conflict,’ and there are so many ways people can interpret the conflict and interpret the reconciliation process.”
In addition to the First Peoples’ Conference and the First-Nation Conference, Sorenns group has other events planned.
They are holding a “Resilience” event this week at the University of Saskatchewan.
The group will be holding another Resilience event this weekend at the same venue.
