Stones of Support


True North Aid believes that one aspect of repairing the nation-to-nation relationship between non-Indigenous and Indigenous people in Canada begins helping to restore that which has been lost due to colonialism and forced assimilation including culture and language.

True North Aid encourages and funds Indigenous-led initiatives across Turtle Island that reclaim  identity, customs, traditions, spirituality, and language. In particular, there is increased awareness that connecting Indigneous youth with culturally relevant and land-based practices bolsters self-esteem, and encourages community leadership.
