We encourage the instruction of physical and health literacy which keeps in mind treaty education and the adoption of culturally responsive instruction methods. The description of culturally responsiveness includes these qualities: affirming, holistic, ceremonial healing, value based, visual, purposeful, community based, honoring of Elders and traditional knowledge keepers, respectful of diversity and celebration of life. In this kit we provide concepts, suggestions, and possibilities to consider when creating a culturally responsive teaching and learning experience within your classrooms. These are not formal lesson plans, as we believe that each teacher has their unique style of implementing learning outcomes into their practices. The included resource binder has sections of FNMI Games, Lesson Ideas, Quick Links to Information and Cultural Dance to name a few.
Double Balls, Stick Pull Sticks, Feather Sticks, Hoops, Hackey Sacks, Bone Toss Game, Metis Dances Handbook/CD assist you in learning of some Indigenous Games.
