MB launches new educational resources, guidelines

The Government of Manitoba has launched the Mamàhtawisiwin Tools for Reflection, Planning and Reporting, a set of educational resources and guidelines to support Indigenous education and truth and reconciliation efforts that build on a provincial policy framework launched last year. The tool can be used by school divisions to support individual and group reflection, identify priority areas for professional development; and celebrate progress toward an Indigenous-inclusive education system. “As we continue along the path towards truth and reconciliation, it is more important than ever to empower educators with resources that reflect Indigenous languages, cultures and identities,” said MB Education and Early Childhood Learning Minister Wayne Ewasko. MB also plans to distribute six bilingual books—developed collaboratively by the Manitoba Museum, Poplar River First Nation, Pauingassi First Nation, Little Grand Rapids First Nation, and Bloodvein First Nation—to 37 school divisions and 71 First Nation schools.
