First Nations, Métis and Inuit perspectives

Teachers and teacher candidates who want to learn more about students from First Nations, Métis or Inuit communities and help them find ways to better connect with their heritage should take a look at the new College video Voices of Wisdom: Learning from Elders.

In this 14-minute video, First Nations elders, an Inuit elder and a Métis senator share personal stories of tragedy, experience, wisdom and cultural identity. Their words underline the importance of understanding our Canadian history and the experiences First Nations, Inuit and Métis students bring to our classrooms.

These stories will help educators enhance their professional knowledge and practice.

The College developed this resource to support the development of Additional Qualifications course guidelines.

Voices of Wisdom: Learning from Elders will be available this fall on the College web site at DVDs can be ordered through
