About the Book

Academic success rates for Aboriginal students are dismal compared to the national average. Examining and implementing new methods and pedagogy for our Aboriginal schools may be beneficial for our students, worthwhile for the education system, and also our communities. Our children need to be educated in an environment where the school reflects excellence and aims at incorporating native values and beliefs. A strong cultural identity and equally strong academic performance will create citizens who can walk with confidence in both worlds. Success for Native students can be achieved if their needs and aspirations are appropriately identified and served by an education system that is designed to meet them. First Nations need to be viable and accountable decision makers in the planning and implementing of programs that strive for excellence and inclusion in education. We need to collectively work together to re-establish our return to the natural law of our people. This natural law affirms the responsibility and respect that lies with the present and future generations, as our children are carriers of the language and culture.
