Who are the Aboriginal people? What language do they speak? How did they live in the past, and how do they live today? Why should we learn about Aboriginal peoples? What does their experience have to do with me? Our Aboriginal programmers would like to share the local and regional history with you and your students. We will tailor the program to meet your curriculum needs.

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