“What have you heard? Addressing misconceptions about Indigenous Peoples in Canada.”
This resource (PDF | Word) was designed to introduce ETFO members to relevant and appropriate information that aims to address common misconceptions that exist in our society. The brochure includes information and resources that are all hyperlinked to various websites to provide members with more in-depth information on various topics.
It is our hope that this resource will encourage ETFO members to take steps to learn more about Indigenous Peoples in Canada for the benefit of learning about our nation’s history and to gain knowledge to share with young people in our classrooms.
A Social Justice Companion Resource to the ETFO FNMI Women Poster
This companion resource was developed for educators to use alongside the 2016 ETFO poster celebrating twenty-one First Nations, Métis and Inuit women in Canada for their contributions and advocacy work. The purpose of this resource (PDF | Word) is to support educators in their instructional approaches to teaching about social justice and advocacy while learning about Indigenous Peoples, specifically the women honoured in the poster. There are many hyperlinks and activity prompts educators can use in their instructional practice.
Engaging Learners Through Play
ETFO and Right To Play Canada created this resource for elementary educators that provides information on the diversity of the original inhabitants of Canada, common terms and definitions, creating culturally inclusive learning environments that are reflective of First Nations, Métis and Inuit learners, engagement strategies that support culturally inclusive instructional practices, background information on worldviews, treaties, residential schools, inspiring Indigenous leaders, and play-based activities that support and engage all students. Available through shopETFO for $15.00 (plus S/H).
Cultural Appropriation VS. Appreciation
To support ETFO members in integrating Indigenous perspectives, worldviews and content into their instructional practices, ETFO works with ETFO members, allies and Indigenous Peoples and organizations to develop authentic and relevant resources. In 2019, ETFO developed this new resource (PDF | Word) that examines cultural appropriation versus appreciation. This resource includes information that encourages educators to self-reflect and respectful approaches to demonstrate appreciation of Indigenous stories, cultures and arts.
