Indigenous communities in Canada finally on Google Maps

“It’s important to me because there are so many Indigenous groups across the country and to not see them as an important fabric of a base map, just to not be recognized, it’s insulting,” said Steve DeRoy, a member of the Ebb and Flow First Nation in Manitoba, and one of the researchers/cartographers working on this project.

    Gosh they never run out of things to complain about eh? If the Google Streetview car had gone in without permission they would have complained about that too.

    Doesn’t take much to ’empower’ some people does it?

    “Maps” are white cultural appropriation.

    Given that Indian Reserves have been included on Topographical maps, via the Mapping and Charting Establishment, since 2WW, I do not understand their problem.

    Now when e.g. a Native kid freezes to death out in just a nappy in February, we’ll be able to see exactly where it happened now. That’s progress.
