Map of Aboriginal Canada by Aaron Carapella

Aaron Capella asked that we take a look at this awesome map, and AYO wants to ask you where you are from?

The map of Canadian First Nations pre-European contact has only been hanging on Allan Yerxa’s office wall for a few days, but already the response has been “wow.”

“I think (the map) is really important. It helps us with our self-identity. It’s important for the First Nations people to know where they come from, because they’re missing all that right now,” said Yerxa, who serves as lands and resources coordinator for Couchiching First Nation, and as such does a fair amount of historical research.

Yerxa provided mapmaker Aaron Carapella with information of First Nations in the northwest area of Ontario.
