As historians, we know history is subjective. As a non-Indigenous company that works with Indigenous governments and organizations across Canada, we’ve learned that colonial historical narratives fail First Nations, Métis, and Inuit. They don't account for Indigenous experiences nor include Indigenous stories. 

We created Know Indigenous History because we believe that consulting and partnering with Indigenous Peoples is the best way we can contribute to decolonizing history. We recognize that history isn’t just about what happened in the past—it’s also a part of the present. It defines who we are and where we are going.  For this reason, we offer historical research services and products that meet the unique needs of Indigenous communities. We ensure community-wide access to the archival collections we uncover in our research, and work with the community to preserve the knowledge shared with us for future generations.

Statement on Indigenous Data Sovereignty

Know History understands that Indigenous data sovereignty is a vital part of Indigenous self-determination. In our work with Indigenous clients, we respect the right of Indigenous Peoples to own and control all information about their communities in alignment with their distinct world view. We ensure community-wide access to the archival collections we uncover in our research, and work with the community to preserve the knowledge shared with us for future generations
