Aboriginal Perspectives was written from an Aboriginal perspective to fit the Alberta Aboriginal Studies 10 curriculum. This resource was reviewed by Elders from across Alberta. The textbook includes:

  • a unique approach to teaching First Nations, Métis, and Inuit history, culture, and issues,
  • effective chapter organizers provide material to consider as students begin and end each chapter,
  • first-hand stories, ideas, viewpoints, and experiences of Aboriginal people,
  • profiles of contemporary and historical people have made contributions,
  • detailed maps, photos, and informative timelines which illustrate and summarize significant topics
  • Talking Circle activities to encourage discussion and reflect Aboriginal traditions,
  • special features on Issues for Investigation, Indigenous Knowledge, and Symbolism and Expression,
  • samples of eleven Aboriginal languages,
  • each chapter ends with a review to check understanding, encourage reflection, and apply and broaden knowledge and skills.

A companion teacher's guide is in development.

Peoples and Cultural Change (Aboriginal Studies 20) is also available. Contemporary Issues (Aboriginal Studies 30) will be available April 2005.
