    Take Action for Reconciliation LogoEngage students in inquiry about Indigenous cultures, worldviews, and history as we work towards reconciliation in Canada.

    Grades 3–8

    Community Ties Resource and Teacher

    Four student books focus on Indigenous communities across Canada, the need for reconciliation, and the actions people are taking to make a difference. Through these examples, students will realize that they too can have an impact and work towards reconciliation.

    We asked Indigenous educators across the country for advice and then brought together a team of ten highly-qualified and knowledgeable advisors to develop the resource. The team took the lead planning the content of a grades 3–8 resource with a focus on community, land, well-being, and reconciliation. They contributed articles, photographs, ideas, expertise, wisdom, and perspectives and oversaw every aspect of the resource.
