« L’éducation est la clé de la réconciliation...» (CVR, 2015, p.261)
The Val-d’Or Native Friendship Centre is proud to offer this Educational Kit designed for primary and secondary schools. This initiative is aimed at discovering First Peoples’ culture and was designed to raise awareness on racial discrimination. Students will be introduced to elements of culture, both ancestral and contemporary, that they may share with their friends and relatives. The learning activities proposed in the kit are play-based for the primary level and interactive for the secondary level. We encourage all teachers to adapt the activities to their specific situation. This document also puts in context the Week for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination held each year in March, and the Gabriel-Commanda Walk attended since 2001 by hundreds of people to promote peaceful and harmonious co-existence.
