First Nations, Métis & Inuit Education Integration Resources:

  • Begin by defining World View.  First, use a Placemat Activity (see "Stepping Out" for instructions) to see what the students know, then add information as necessary.
  • As an example of two world views, use information from Larry McCallum's power point: Traditional First Nations spirituality. Ask for a presenter or a kehtaya to do a presentation in your class.
  • Use the DVD "Allen Sapp's Art: Through the Eyes of the Cree and Beyond" copy write 2005 Office of the Treaty Commissioner - a 19 minute video to show how Sapp's art reflects the worldview of his Cree community.
  • There is also a teacher resource DVD - very helpful exercises about studying Sapp's art - asking students to identify elements of Cree culture in his paintings.
  • Use the Teacher Resource DVD which comes with "Allen Sapp's Art: Through The Eyes of the Cree and Beyond".  Several sections of this are very helpful, including the sections on Tipi Teachings (p. 37), The Treaty Medal (p. 39) and Treaty Facts and Misconceptions (p.52).
  • Could also use the book "First Contact" (from Canada: A People's History, Nelson, 2006 ISBN 0-17-633659-1) pages 46 and 47.
