Common Threads V – Just released
Full Circle: First Nation, Métis and Inuit Ways of Knowing
As the original inhabitants of Canada, First Nation, Métis and Inuit people have a variety of inherent Aboriginal and treaty rights. Since the history of Canada begins with them, Aboriginal peoples are unique in Canada’s mosaic. These rights however, have often been denied by governments or misunderstood by the majority in society or by the media. Our education system has also had difficulty in adapting to meet the needs of Aboriginal students.
For all of these reasons, the fifth Common Threads Project is a departure from the previous format of travelling overseas and researching a topic leading to a better understanding of how global citizens can tackle a common problem.
The material explores the various issues in a cross curricular format providing background context and examples of successful strategies to overcome these challenges.
