Walking Together
First Nations, Metis and Inuit Perspectives in Curriculum

The digital resource Walking Together:  First Nations, Metis and Inuit Perspectives in Curriculum was designed through Alberta Education as a teacher and family resource to provide a better understanding of all areas of Indigenous Education, to help teachers understand the holistic nature of FNMI ways of knowing, to provide opportunity for FNMI Peoples to share their perspectives on topics important to them, and to demonstrate FNMI perspectives in teaching and learning experiences.

Staff Resources - Are you looking for resources to support Indigenous Education in your classroom?  We are compiling a list of speakers, artists, videos, and other resources that have proven beneficial to Chinook's Edge teachers and staff.  This list will be available soon for staff.

FNMI Resources

Alberta Education has launched the new First Nations, Métis and Inuit (FNMI) Collaborative Framework:  Building Relationships webpage.  This new online model and resources were developed after extensive consultation with district FNMI teams:  Elders from Treaty 6, Treaty 7 and Treaty 8, educators, and many other partners.  This site will enable administrators, educators, parents, and communities to develop and implement relationship-based strategies that support the educational success of FNMI students.

Specific tools and resources include:

  • Digital Collaborative Framework Model
  • Videos featuring FNMI education partners
  • Companion resource - Successful Practices in First Nations, Métis and Inuit Education

Alberta Education is pleased with the FNMI Collaborative Framework:  Building Relationships resources that will support all school authorities.  The Moving Forward:  Implementing FNMI Collaborative Framework booklet is a key document for facilitating further dialogue.
