Aboriginal Worldviews and Perspectives Resource Video

Good afternoon, everyone.  A new video featuring Aboriginal educators from around the province has just been posted to our website here:

There is also a PowerPoint presentation that can be used as a training template to support educators in BC through professional development workshops and to supplement the resource booklet. The short video highlights educators from around the province speaking about the importance of including Aboriginal education throughout the education system as the new curriculum is implemented.

This project is a call to action for educators and leadership to create and enhance learning environments to serve each learner, family and community. Aboriginal voice is dominant in this resource guide and reflects the opinions of community members.

This resource guide aligns with the Calls to Action of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission and the newly revised curriculum emphasizing relevant, authentic inclusion of content regarding Aboriginal culture, language and history. The resource guide supports educators and provides context as they incorporate the First Peoples Principles of Learning into their learning environments.
