    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 TeacherFour 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.
