Turtle Island: traditional/original name of North America

Settler: all non-Indigenous people are settler-colonizers, whether they were born here or not. Settlers are immigrants to Turtle island (eg. your grandparent coming from Europe in the 1900s) often helping colonizers "settle" and take over indigenous land. 

Indian (NDN): legal description of indigenous people (eg. Indian Act) sometimes used/reclaimed by indigenous people. Do NOT use this term if you are non-indigenous.

Unceded: un-conquered land that was never given/sold to/or won by the Canadian or US governments. No treaties are in place in these lands and they do not belong to Canada or the US.
