        Whose land are

       Do some research.

Why is this important
                                                           to know?
                                                   It is our responsibility as residents/citizens to
                                                  educate ourselves on the history of Canada as
                                                  well as on current issues that continue to affect
                                                              First Nations communities.

It is respectful of the First Nations of Canada
              and their ancestors

It helps develop positive relationships
 between newcomers and Indigenous
               Peoples

 You might be an Indigenous student!

STUDENT: Sir, tomorrow is my grandmother’s birthday.

INSTRUCTOR: Oh, wonderful, how old will she be?

STUDENT: Very old, sir. She is the top of our family.

INSTRUCTOR: Wow. Are you getting her anything special for a gift?

STUDENT: No. But we will have a big celebration with our whole family
on skype tomorrow.

INSTRUCTOR: How fun! Well, say happy birthday to your grandmother
for me. Oh, and don’t forget you’ve got your assignment is due tomorrow.
STUDENT: ........
STUDENT: Sir, tomorrow is my grandmother’s
birthday and we are having a big party in the
afternoon that I have to skype into.

INSTRUCTOR: Oh. But our class is tomorrow
afternoon and you need to submit your assignment.

STUDENT: Yes, I realize that, but I won’t be able to
attend class tomorrow. I’m hoping that I can get an
extension on my assignment.              Think About:
                                      Will you need to alter
