Drs. Sarah de Leeuw and Margo Greenwood recently contributed a chapter to Space, Place and Environment, Geographies of Children and Young People that considers the central role Indigenous children and youth played, and continue to play, in building and maintaining Canada as a nation-state. The chapter explores what constitutes Indigeneity, who qualifies as a ‘real' Indigenous person, and what it means to be Indigenous today. de Leeuw and Greenwood then provide an overview of Indigenous children and youth as a field of geographic enquiry.
