For this year's edition of OpenCanada's annual Twitterati list, we celebrate the contributions of Indigenous peoples to policy in Canada and on the international stage.

From front-line advocates fighting for the environment, justice or Indigenous rights, to lawyers and policy makers with a seat at the United Nations, to the organizations holding it all together and the media outlets helping to make sense of it all, here are more than 100 social media influencers in the global Indigenous community (albeit those tweeting mostly in English) you should be following.

Get to know each one with our list below.
