Integrating Aboriginal Perspectives in Curricula

The province of Manitoba has a strong foundation in Aboriginal education and offers a good example for other districts. It continues to offer its teachers: foundational training, professional development opportunities, and access to resources, in order to better support their growing number of aboriginal students. Here is a document recently distributed to all staff: Integrating Aboriginal Perspectives Into Currricula

I appreciate that there is an attempt being made to get this information into the hands of all teachers. As a teacher of 14 years within two districts, both with a large Aboriginal population, I have never once been provided with resources – I have always had to seek them out.
