After seven years of collaboration between Indigenous communities in Canada and Google, Indigenous Lands are now a part of Google Maps.

June 21 is National Aboriginal Day in Canada. As part of the day, Google Maps added over 3000 Indigenous Lands to Google Maps and Google Earth.

Until this point, only towns were recognized in Indigenous communities. 

Canada has more than 1.4 million people who self-identify as First Nations, Metis, or Inuit. There are 600 bands living on 3100 reserves and in urban centres across Canada.
