University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada
The Student Teachers Anti-Racism Society (STARS) promotes anti-racism education at the College of Education, University of Saskatchewan through the support of the College. We work collaboratively to understand, identify, and address individual and systemic racism and its interlocking forms of oppression based on gender, sexuality, ability, class, religion and other socially constructed categories. We believe that anti-racist and decolonizing education, when woven together, can create humanizing and emancipatory change for everyone.

History in our faces on occupied land: A race relations timeline

This is a great teaching resource called "History in our Faces on Occupied Land: A Race Relations Timeline" by the Vancouver Status of Women group. The resource can be used to teach Canadian history across grade levels.

"This timeline has been created as part of Vancouver Status of Women’s Racialization of Poverty Project, a feminist, anti-racist and intersectional research project that analyses how Canada’s historic and current legislation creates poverty for racialized communities in very specific and pervasive ways. Our analysis locates the violent history of European colonization of Indigenous Peoples in Canada as a central point of the discussion on legislated racism in Canada; as such, VSW recognizes that the challenges faced by Indigenous communities in Canada today are a direct result of Canada’s systemic and institutional tactics of genocide and assimilation."
