Canada has three distinct groups of Aboriginal people: First Nations, Metis, and Inuit. Foundational questions such as “Who are the Aboriginal people?”, “What languages do they speak?” and “How did they live and how to do they live today?” will be explored. Students will learn about local and regional history with our programmers. Focusing on a specific event or Aboriginal group? We are happy to tailor the program to support your curriculum needs.

We encourage questions and discussions relevant to the Aboriginal Peoples of Canada, both in the past and present. Sharing stories, considering different perspectives, and recognizing the impactful contributions of the Aboriginal community throughout our history will give students the tools they need to be well informed citizens. This program includes a hands-on activity.
