Library and Archives Canada (LAC) has posted online a newly digitized Indigenous newspaper, the Turtle Island News, from Ontario (2001–2013 editions).
This is the third Indigenous newspaper that has been digitized and made available, following the Windspeaker and Ha-Shilth-Sa last June.
This digitization project was carried out by LAC at the request of the National Heritage Digitization Strategy (NHDS), an initiative of Canada’s memory institutions to coordinate digitization activities across the country.
LAC is pleased to have collaborated with the publishers on this special project, which provides Canadians with increased access to rich Indigenous documentary heritage.
Read any of the digitized Indigenous newspapers.
We are pleased to participate, providing insight into the modern day history of the Haudenosaunee as seen through the eyes of Haudenosaunee writers and photographers.
