C3 EOCCC: It’s a Way of Life, First Nations, Métis and Inuit Stories: Un mode de vie, histoires des premières nations, métis et inuit.
Presenters: Marian Lawson-MacDonald, Christina Lapierre
Description: Involved, knowledgeable and talented are a few of the words used to describe the First Nations, Métis and Inuit participants in this multimedia resource developed by the Eastern Ontario Catholic Curriculum Corporation (EOCCC). It features Aboriginal youth and adults who are sharing their way and are an inspiration to all. As we learn together about Canada’s First Peoples we see how spirituality is interwoven through their everyday experience. Similarly, as Catholic educators we are called to make our faith an integral part of our teaching and learning and to walk hand-in-hand with our children, parent community and parish. For this reason, you will notice that as we learn about Indigenous cultures, we also connect with our Catholic traditions and teachings. Throughout this resource there are connections with Catholic themes, anchor concepts and the Catholic Graduate Expectations.
