Examples of District Aboriginal Education Pages

As BC is diverse and each district may represent several First Nations and have students from other First Peoples groups, we have identified several that have shared their work publicly.

FNESC Authentic Resources

The First Nations Education Steering Committee (FNESC) and First Nations Schools Association (FNSA) have developed the Authentic First Peoples Resources (K-9) guide. The guide identifies currently available authentic First Peoples texts for use by students and teachers. FNESC has its own evaluation process and criteria. Our evaluators have evaluated many, but not all, of the resources listed in the guide. Check the K-12 Evaluated Resource Collection to see which of the resources have been evaluated and approved. If you would like a resource to be evaluated, submit the request here.
