CHAPTER ONE: EXPRESSING MY INDIGENOUS CULTURE
Course Description:
This course examines Indigenous cultures in Canada through an explanation of art forms- painting, sculpture, storytelling, dance and music – created by Aboriginal artists. Students will learn to identify Indigenous art forms and describe relationships between the art forms and Indigenous traditions, philosophy and culture. Students will also create their own art forms to express their understanding of Indigenous identity, relationships and sovereignty. Wellness is an important factor in determining how expression is used and interpreted. Students will explore various ways of expression; both positive and negative life experiences, and how to properly channel these feelings to create indigenous art forms.

CHAPTER 4: INDIGENOUS CIVICS

Students will learn about the elements of democracy in the local, national, and global contexts, about political reactions to social change, and about political decision-making processes in Canada. They will explore their own and others’ ideas about civics questions and learn how to think critically about public issues and react responsibly to them. They will come to understand the unique relationship between Canada’s Indigenous People and the Federal, Provincial and territorial governments. They will not only understand the aura of conflict surrounding the relations between the non-Indigenous and Indigenous people in Canada but come to understand the challenges needed to build a new present day relationship between Indigenous peoples and the governments.
