Integrating Aboriginal Perspectives into Curricula

http://www.edu.gov.mb.ca/k12/docs/policy/abpersp/ab_persp.pdf

The overall goal of this article is to assist educators with integrating more Aboriginal perspectives effectively into the curriculum.  Historically, the aboriginal perspective of how Canada came to be has been ignored, and it is only recently that that is starting to change.  The Aboriginal culture is based on the view that the universe was made by the Creator and humans must live in harmony with nature.  To foster the changes in perspective and correct social biases, it is indicated that developing curricula with Aboriginal content is a start.  This document looks at all aspects of Aboriginal culture and moves into ways to make Aboriginal content a staple in the curriculum, which will benefit both non-Aboriginal and Aboriginal students.
