Welcome to Maamwi. The Maamwi Hub is inspired by the TRC 94 Calls to Action to ensure that the 24 Colleges of Ontario lead in the education of both staff and students on Indigenous history, culture, knowledge, and current Indigenous worldviews. The word "Maamwi" means "Together" in Anishinaabemowin, one of the widely spoken Indigenous languages in the territory currently referred to as Ontario.

Resources that are culturally authentic, historically accurate and respectful of the diversity of the identities and experiences of First Nations, Métis and Inuit will encourage recognition of Aboriginal peoples and affirm their contributions to Canadian history as documented in the holdings of Library and Archives Canada. The assessment tool for validating appropriate content introduces critical thinking and analysis when locating and using both primary and secondary sources. The following checklist assists the researcher to consider how resources present Aboriginal documentary heritage, in text and imagery.
The WNCP employed researchers from the Aboriginal Education Research Centre (AERC) at the University of Saskatchewan to conduct a research project entitled Cultural Authenticity and Historical Accuracy (2009). The research project resulted in the document, Guidelines for Assessing and Validating Teaching and Learning Resources for Cultural Authenticity and Historical Accuracy of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit Content (2009). The guidelines are based on an analysis and synthesis of current WNCP provincial and territorial (regional) strategies used to assess and validate First Nations, Métis and Inuit content in teaching and learning resources.
