Women, Contemporary Aboriginal Issues, and Resistance: Tool Kit (Alexa McDonough Institute for Women, Gender and Social Justice )

 

Welcome to Women, Contemporary Aboriginal Issues, and Resistance, a free kit designed to help you and your students, your classmates, or your friends explore what it’s like to grow up Aboriginal and what other young Canadians learn about Indigenous peoples. The toolkit is available in hard copy for loan in the CRC and  from the Mount Library, or digitally using the link below.

Women, Contemporary Aboriginal Issues, and Resistance helps strip away the fears and stigmas that keep people from speaking openly about Aboriginal issues. We hope to create a better understanding of each other and ourselves.

The kit follows the lives of three fictional children as they grow into adulthood, quickly becoming aware of the way their prejudices, Aboriginal roots, and friendships continue to play an important role in shaping their view of each other, and our country.

You do not need a teacher, although you may want to have a discussion leader or organizer to keep everyone on track. Women, Contemporary Aboriginal Issues, and Resistance is recommended for ages 14+ and is suited for individual study, or groups as large as 30.

There are six items in the kit: http://www.msvu.ca/en/home/research/centresandinstitutes/IWGSJ/Events/ToolKit.aspx
