You hear that word a lot when it comes to indigenous social issues.

At The Frog Radio, we believe this to mean: to infuse more indigenous culture and values into our daily lives, regardless of race; not throwing away your cell phone and going to live in the bush (although that sounds so appealing sometimes!)

The resources below can help you live a decolonized life.

Please note: these are merely suggestions. The Frog Radio does not claim to have professional advice for any health related issues. Please do your due diligence and get the help you feel is best for you.

Domestic Violence

For immediate emergency help, call 911

Ending Violence Association of Canada- A list of help, province by province - A list of women's shelters across Canada

National Aboriginal Circle Against Family Violence

Indian Act

Many Canadians don't know anything about the Indian Act. The fact that it's even a thing is unbelievable once you start unfolding what it actually contains. These are just some resources:

Indian Act

Indian Residential Schools

Crisis Line- If you need to reach out to anyone and talk about your experiences, please call the National Indian Residential School Crisis Line at: 1-866-925-4419

Indian Residential School Survivors Society- this site is a great resource on how you can assist or find healing from your experiences related to Indian Residential Schools.

Legacy of Hope- a national Indigenous charitable organization with the mandate to educate and create awareness and understanding about the Residential School System, including the intergenerational impacts

Orange Shirt Day- every September 30, we honour and remember the survivors and those who didn't make it out of Residential Schools. Inspired by Phyllis Webstad's experience where her new orange shirt was taken from her on her first day of school and never seen again, we wear our orange shirts.

*** PLEASE, when purchasing an orange shirt, make sure you are supporting an indigenous company. There are many companies out there profiting off the pain of our people. An indigenous company will be very clear of who they are and most likely will be donating some or all proceeds to a charity or non-profit of some sort.

One of the regulations of becoming a CRTC radio station is mandatory local news content. Since The Frog Radio will not become a CRTC station (that is how we are decolonizing radio!) here are some resources of where you can get your Indigenous news.

Native News Online

First Nations Drum

Radio Stations/Programs


This one may come as a surprise to people. An Indigenous worldview includes sharing and uplifting one another, even if, in a western worldview we're seen as competition. In order to decolonize the industry, The Frog Radio will not become a CRTC regulated station, which means (unless you have the right hook ups and adequate data plan) you won't be able to listen to us in your car. But you'll be able to tune into these indigenous stations or radio programs:
