Aboriginal Children's games

Some FN games to try
"Games are an important part of Aboriginal society, passed down from generation to generation. Games teach cooperation, team work and social skills. Some games also teach other essential skills such as target practice, hand/eye coordination, agility, and dexterity. They were important for the emotional, physical, and mental development of the community members. Games also provide a good form of exercise and leisure activity for the young and the old. Many games were played in the winter- time."

Aboriginal content on CBC

A new "channel" on the CBC
It looks like the CBC is taking aboriginal issues more seriously. There is a channel on the main site that allows viewers to follow targeted news stories as well as upload events and issues in local communities. This is a good step!
