Aboriginal Peoples in Canada from 1945-‐1982
Lesson 1: The class will be discussing the transformation of Canadian identity by analyzing significant events, developments and issues that have affected First Nations, Inuit, and Metis people in Canada during 1945 and 1982. This lesson will explain the difference between First Nation, Inuit, and Metis (and metis with a lower case ‘m’) peoples in Canada, where they were during 1945 and 1982, and what treaties are. This section is important in order to develop foundational knowledge before the class expands deeper into this subject. For an activity the class will make a class treaty together to demonstrate their understanding.
