Promoting Indigenous Awareness: The Elders Speak (Lethbridge 2019)

This workshop is designed to equip ESL instructors and facilitators with true and practical understanding of the relationship between all peoples living within the territories of Treaties 6, 7 and 8. Through video, five Elders of Anishinaabe, Inuvialuit, Métis, Nehiyaw, and Siksika Peoples share knowledge on eight topics. These videos can be used with newcomers or other learners as primary source material.  Sample lesson plans at CLB 3, 4 and 5 demonstrate ways to use the videos. The Elders speak both as representatives of their own peoples, and from personal experience. Newcomers will benefit greatly by interacting with Indigenous neighbours; such conversations facilitated by instructors will be an important step toward owning the responsibility for reconciliation to which the Truth and Reconciliation Commission calls all of us.
