Empowering the Spirit – First Nations, Métis and Inuit Education

First Nations, Metis and Inuit Education – Literacy and Numeracy Practices

This website will provide opportunities to expand your understanding of literacy and numeracy practices from First Nations, Métis and Inuit perspectives and gain tools and strategies to support First Nations, Métis and Inuit and all students' success in your community.

In support of First Nations, Métis and Inuit students' success – and to support the educators that work with those students – a variety of online resources have been developed. This work is a result of a grant from Alberta Education, to Alberta Regional Professional Development Consortia (ARPDC), to support implementation.
