Aboriginal History is Everyone's History - recorded webinar

Teaching about aboriginal issues for all learners

"In recent years, Canadian school curricula have started to offer high school Native studies classes focusing on Aboriginal history and culture. Ben Sichel (@bsichel), a Mi'kmaq Studies 10 teacher in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, argues that the material in these courses is important for non-Native students to learn as well, and offers tips for making it relevant to their lives. Non-native teachers can — and should — teach them how things like treaties, the Indian Act, and enduring racism and stereotypes about Aboriginal people play into the lives of all Canadians."
