In 1867, Canada's federal government became responsible for the education of Indigenous peoples: Status Indians and some Métis would attend schools on reserves; non-Status Indians and some Métis would attend provincial schools. The chapters in this collection - some reflective, some piercing, all of them insightful - show that this system set the stage for decades of broken promises and misguided experiments that are only now being rectified in the spirit of truth and reconciliation. The contributors individually explore what must change in order to work toward reconciliation; collectively, they reveal the possibilities and challenges associated with incorporating Traditional Knowledge and Indigenous teaching and healing practices into school courses and programs.Subject(s): Canada | Education | Education and state | History | Indigenous peoples | Off-reservation boarding schoolsOriginal Publisher: [S.l.], UBC PressLanguage(s): English
