Description

This is the first of three volumes of educational activities for use in First Nations and multicultural classrooms. The activities stress the importance of culture in students' lives, and teaches them basic personal and community-related skills so they may become more self-reliant and culturally responsible.

The Native Education Services Associates are a group of teaching professionals with extensive experience in Native and multicultural education. Their materials provide educators with meaningful and appropriate culturally-based learning resources and are also designed to enhance understanding between ethnic and cultural groups.

About the authors

Don and Jan lived all over the United States and Canada before settling in Salmon Arm, British Columbia, in 1980. Melissa had shown up three years earlier and was immediately the cutest and smartest baby ever born. Farish came along in 1982. Melissa wasn't initially convinced that having a little sister would be fun, but eventually came around. Melissa now lives in New Orleans, where she is the Executive Director of the Youth Empowerment Project. Farish resides in Philadelphia, where she also works with inner-city kids. Both Jan and Don have sort of retired, but not really. Don writes books and articles and gives workshops. He still does development work in Africa. Jan is active in about a zillion volunteer groups and is a literacy consultant. When they find spare time, they enjoy travelling and visiting their daughters and sharing the girls' exciting lives.
