Relationships and Colonialism in #NAC2O

In NAC2O – Grade 10 Native Studies, we’ve been doing a mix of things. Over the last week, we’ve focused time on identifying various FNMI groups from across Canada, taking note of how different groups changed depending on where they were located. Next, we’ll start talking about the impacts of First Contact and the move towards Colonialism in the 19th and 20th centuries. A wee bit of history! To begin, students will create a timeline by each contributing an important event from First Nations, Métis, and Inuit history. Here’s the assignment:

Our partnership with the Thunderbird Friendship Centre continues as the StreetWolf program is delivered. We’ve talked about clans and clan systems and students created rocks representing their clan. They turned out really, really well. Check out the pictures!
