Treaty 2 Territory – Good Day! We hope that everyone is doing well & keeping safe. FNT2T Life Long Learning has come across a few great resources for Indigenous youth.
First, for those who may not have seen or read the story yet covered by CBC journalist, Lenard Monkman, who is also from Lake Manitoba First Nation in Treaty 2 territory, there is a new animated series coming out with a main character who is First Nations. It is to be based on Anishinaabe teachings. The show, Wolf Joe, was created by Media Rendezvous, Amberwood Entertainment, and Turtle Lodge. Those interested can read Lenard’s full CBC Indigenous story: https://www.cbc.ca/news/indigenous/wolf-joe-cartoon-anishinaabe-culture-1.5871749
Next is a set of Indigenous History Month posters created by Megan Tipler of Tipler Teaches who is an Indigenous educator. The first set of six posters include the accomplishments of those such as Buffy St. Marie (Cree), Tasha Spillet-Sumner (Cree & Trinidadian), and Christi Belcourt (Métis). Tipler has four more sets of posters underway. You can find the posters on website, Teachers Pay Teachers, which a site that was mentioned in previous FNT2T LLL posts that discussed learning resources. The fee is very reasonable at $10.00 with the option to purchase a license to share the posters. Here is a link to the posters on Teachers Pay Teachers: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Indigenous-History-Month-Posters-Growing
Third is a program by BCANDS and Indspire called the (Indigenous) Support for Student Learning Program which provides support for those students who have limited financial resources and/or living with a disability. The (limited) program can possibly help Indigenous students obtain a laptop and/or accessories that supports their learning. It is available to Indigenous students across Canada actively attending school from Kindergarten to post-secondary to those taking courses through an accredited institution.
