This is a great authentic Indigenous resource evaluation list for K-7. It includes a description of each resource (for example, it will give an overview of the story in the book), as well as curricular areas, themes and topics covered by each resource. It even includes author and illustrator background information (namely, which Indigenous group(s) they belong to), as well as number of pages, reading level, and any other key features of the resource (for example, if the text is in both English and Cree, if there are sensitive topic warnings, if it comes with a glossary, if it's a book suitable for a "first novel", if the resource intertwines facts and fiction). This would be an awesome place to gather ideas for adding Indigenous resources to a classroom library.

This is a website which has multiple resources and tools to help integrate Indigenous learning into every other subject. This is super helpful for lesson planning and helps naturally integrate it rather than trying to force it and have students learn nothing.
