In this session, you will have an opportunity to learn about a variety of resources you can use to identify and evaluate the best materials to support the incorporation of First Nations Studies throughout the school year, not just around Indigenous Peoples Day or Native American Heritage Month, in your library and your collaborations with other educators. Participants will leave with a list of texts, digital media, blogs and websites to explore to support work around teaching and learning Indigenous studies.
