Cultural Curriculum Materials
Dene Kede:TABLE OF CONTENTS, Northwest Territory, Canada Dene curriculum (Ministry of Education) Very thoroughly worked out by a Dene staff, divided into sections corresponding to the regular public school curriculum. Outlines, objectives, activity plans, summaries. Actual materials are not on-line.
BC Ministry of Aboriginal Education--Education about First Nations to a well-defined standard is now mandatory as a graduation requirement for all BC students! and here begins the outline of a carefully-planned curriculum with many options for doing it. Planning, includes schools getting in touch with Native resource people. The plan should be studied carefully by all who are concerned with Native education. It's the Outcomes (assessment criteria) that lay out the structure.
SEVEN GENERATIONS: Mohawk History, Kahnawake Survival School--This history was written in 1983. Included here are 7 chapters out of 29 of a book intended for 10th graders at the survival school, but useful for anyone. The history could perhaps be brought up to date, perhaps, with events of the early 1990's (Oka), and very recently, in support of the Gustafson Lake Sundancers. An on-line link in the book's introduction lets you find out about the Survival School. There's an address for ordering complete copies of the book.
