The Journey to Reclamation Through Oral Tradition

Project #272

Dianne Peekeekoot Charlotte Campbell Shaun Sasakamoose Loretta Ballantyne Irene Dumais


This project follows up on a completed project and examines the impact on students of incorporating Elders into grades 7-9 Cree classes.  The Elders will share stories in Cree to support both language and cultural fluency.  Including Elders in the classroom will allow students to interact with both their peers and adults in traditional ways while learning traditional knowledge.
