Partner to develop engaging educational resources for students within the school system that will supplement current Social Studies curriculums. These will describe and illustrate the history of Indian Residential Schools (IRS), the role of Churches and Government, and the impact the schools have had on First Nation’s people & non-natives.
Create mobile exhibits to be rotated among schools, colleges, universities etc. and in the lobbies of participating corporations with the goal of educating employees about IRS & to create funding, scholarships & job mentoring opportunities.
Develop a proposed permanent education and research centre at UBC to supplement the First Nation’s Studies Program, House of Learning, Museum of Anthropology, Long House, First Nations Library etc.
By creating interactive, multi-media displays that bring the experience of Residential Schools to life, the exhibits will assist educators by enhancing the resources of their in-class curriculum and generate additional interest in the subject with native & non-native people.
