London Indigenous Culture Card

Welcome Partners and Friends! 

Thank you for your interest in the Indigenous Culture Card. We encourage you to use and share the "Indigenous Culture Card –London and Middlesex" with your staff, families and partners! 

The Indigenous Culture Card- London and Middlesex was developed by Healthy Weights Connection (Western University) and London’s Child and Youth Network in response to overwhelming interest expressed by service providers in London and Middlesex County to learn more about First Nations, Métis and Inuit (FNMI) cultures and local communities. It has been adapted from a similar cultural awareness resource developed by the Barrie Area Native Advisory Circle (BANAC). We would like to extend our sincere thanks to BANAC for their support.

The content of the card was informed by members of the local First Nations, Metis and Inuit community in London and Middlesex through several engagement sessions. The purpose of the guide is to serve as a first step towards cultural competence and to help service providers learn more about FNMI history, the local cultures and how to work competently and sensitively with FNMI communities. For those interested in formal training, Indigenous Cultural Competency and Cultural Safety training are recommended. Please contact an Indigenous organization if you are looking for specific resources or looking to learn more about Indigenous populations. A contact list can be found below.
