Authentic First Peoples Resources (K-9)

The past two decades have seen a dramatic increase in the number of resources with a First Peoples theme or focus aimed at young people. This guide, Authentic First Peoples Resources, has been created to help BC educators make appropriate decisions about which of these resources might be appropriate for use with their students to incorporate First Peoples knowledge and perspectives into classrooms in respective ways.

The inclusion of authentic First Peoples content into classrooms supports all students in developing an understanding of the significant place of First Peoples within the historical and contemporary fabric of this province and provides culturally relevant materials for Indigenous learners in British Columbia.

This guide lists resources (story and informational text) written for a student audience. The annotated listings identify currently available authentic First Peoples texts that students can work with to meet provincial standards related to literacy as well as a variety of specific subject areas.
