Aboriginal Education Beyond Words: Creating Racism-Free Schools for Aboriginal Learners
This document begins with a narrative history of racism/assimilation with respect to aboriginal peoples in Canada. While not directly related to Native Americans in the United States, many of the themes and ideas are representative of the same issues in the United States. This document offers advice on creating policy to deal with racism against Aboriginal people, creating inclusive classroom environments, communicating with Aboriginal children’s parents and community leaders, and how to approach teaching controversial topics. Additionally, the document includes case studies and some guided reflection/discussion sections in the back.
