"Basic principles of primary-junior education as they pertain specifically to people of native ancestry in Ontario are elaborated in this resource guide. Intended for both native and non-native teachers, principals, and administrators responsible for curriculum for children of native ancestry and others, its aim is to help in development of a stronger curriculum based upon experience of the children. Through more realistic units on native peoples, the resource guide maintains that the native child's self-image can be strengthened and community wide appreciation of original Canadian people fostered. Pointing out the importance of considering the native child's family, community, economic activity, and self-image in planning curriculum content, a discussion on curriculum also includes activities which teachers of non-native primary students can use in units about native peoples, a teacher checklist for curricular activity planning, and the need to examine curriculum within the context of each community. Sections on environmental studies, the arts, and communications (Ontario primary-junior curriculum categories) offer information relevant to teachers of native children. A brief history of native education in Ontario, a glossary, and a confederation lament by Chief Dan George presented in English, Mohawk, Ojibway, and Cree languages is given." --
