Welcome to the 'National Indigenous History Month 2022' edition of Educator Resources. To commemorate National Indigenous History Month in June (and beyond), the links below include recommended resources to "recognize the rich history, heritage, resilience and diversity of First Nations, Inuit and Métis Peoples across Canada."

Educator Resources:

  1. Elder Nii Gaani Aki Inini (Dr. Dave Courchene), Anishinaabe Nation, Eagle Clan, shares the Seven Sacred Laws, which are the "foundation of our way of life and connection to the Spirit and the land," in the Anishinaabe world and others.
  2. Curated by the National Centre for Collaboration in Indigenous Education, The Circle lesson (all grade levels) includes teachings for students to "use a talking circle as a way of communicating that comes from traditional practice and understanding" and "regularly share in a circle in order to develop their circle practice within their classroom."
  3. Created by Leia Laing and Naomi Fortier-Fréçon, Reimagining History: "Righting" Treaty Wrongs is a lesson (grades 7-12) where "students examine the idea of justice as it applies to Treaty interpretations."
