Indigenous Voices in Canada

Indigenous Voices in Canada

COURSE OVERVIEW

Our son had an incredible experience with EduTravel. He learned so much – both academically and a lot of “life learning” too.

Be inspired by beautiful scenery, enjoy local cuisine, and develop a deeper understanding of place, identity, relationships, and sovereignty as you achieve a Grade 11 English credit. Travel with students from across the country and listen to the voices of contemporary First Nations, Métis, and Inuit authors, poets, journalists, and community partners in person and through texts to formulate questions, engage in discussions, and write about shared paths to Truth and Reconciliation. Visit ancestral lands and gain a new perspective through the cultural centres, learn about Dr. Bryce’s legacy at his gravesite and visit the Canadian Museum for Human Rights.

Meet with Elders to hear about histories and knowledge that have not yet been shared in classrooms or through textbooks, interact with local plant medicines, play traditional games, and learn about important historical figures and landmarks as you journey through unceded Algonquin and Treaty 6 territories. Experience a class where you don’t just read stories, you live them.
