Indigenous experiences with racism and its impacts

July 2014

This fact sheet is the second in a series focused on anti-Indigenous racism in Canada. It focuses on the lived and structural forms of racism and provides a brief overview of what racism is, how it intersects with other forms of discrimination, and how it is manifested. The fact sheet examines how the dominant racialized group (i.e., European settlers) expresses racism in historic and current contexts and how Indigenous people in Canada experience racism in interpersonal, structural and sometimes violent ways. Government policies, healthcare, and judicial systems are also explored for the unique ways in which racism is experienced by Indigenous peoples and how it impacts their well-being.
