Aboriginal Awareness

Professional Growth Opportunities

This one-day workshop is designed to support educators who wish to deepen their understanding of Aboriginal knowledge and culture, and the implications of their work in the classroom. Participants will expand their worldview by understanding how we are all treaty people and what is meant by that, examining the history of Aboriginal education and learning the protocols of working with Elders.

Participants will:

  • Enhance their world view: expanding our thinking about “what’s worth knowing.”
  • Examine the history of education and schooling for Aboriginal people including the impact of residential schools.
  • Understand the spirit and intent of the treaties.
  • Learn how to work with elders.

Develop a deeper understanding of racism, stereotyping and equity.

Audience: All educators
