National Indigenous History Month


June is National Indigenous History Month where “we celebrate National Indigenous History Month to honour the history, heritage and diversity of Indigenous peoples in Canada.”

I had a request from a teacher for resources and offered a couple of excellent resources for her that I’m including below. She had reached out for support at her district and was told to “Google it; there’s lot out there.” Indeed there is, but contemporary educators are complete aware that the choice of resources is more challenging than ever. Things that are “Google-able” aren’t always appropriate and not always an easy fit to Curriculum expectations.

I suggested checking out these resources to see if they were a fit.

Kids’ Stop

At this federal website, there is a section devoted to sharing resources for students.


FNMIEAO

In Ontario, we are fortunate to have a huge collection of subject associations. Many of them host conferences and provide original resources for use in the Ontario classroom. The FNMIEAO provides such resources.

Student Resources

Freely available on the web, you’ll find this Student Guide.

At the bottom of the page, you’ll find a curated collection of videos.

There is also a Teacher Section to the website that requires registration and promises additional resources.

You can follow this subject association online at FNMIEAO.
