"Learning About the Métis"

Métis Cross-Curricular Resource Units

The Grade 4 Métis Cross Curricular Unit stresses the blending of the Aboriginal and European cultures to create the unique Métis culture. The lessons examine and study the adaptations the Métis have made throughout history to ensure the survival of Métis people.

The Grade 7 Métis Cross-Curricular Teacher Guide was created to assist teachers in delivering lessons that focus on the Métis people of British Columbia. There are almost 70,000 Métis people in British Columbia and of that over 21,000 are of elementary school age. Métis people settled in B.C. over the last two hundred years and are a large part of the Aboriginal population in British Columbia.

"That’s where the Métis come from; they were the new Nation, the new shoots that come up from the ground from Mother Earth."

~ Tom McCallum (Métis Elder)
