Resource Spotlight: Aboriginal Resources

Canada Day is less than three weeks away.  To celebrate (and  help you celebration) we will be featuring some Canadian resources for the next few weeks.  Today’s Resource Spotlight will also help you prepare for National Aboriginal Day on June 21st.  (we’ve also got a workshop coming up that day that you should check out!).

The Kingstec ECDSC Support Centre has several aboriginal resources including the ones pictured here.

The Huron Carol is a beautifully illustrated book.  The original carol was written in the 17th Century by a French missionary living among the Huron people in Ontario.  It tells the familiar Christmas story, setting it ‘among the Hurons, giving us the beautiful and very Canadian carol that appears in this book.”  The book, illustrated by Ian Wallace, includes music, multilingual lyrics and a history of the carol.

The Kids Book of Aboriginal Peoples in Canada is an illustrated encyclopedia for children detailing the lives and history before and after European contact.

The Mi’kmaq Anthology Vol. 2 includes poetry and stories from dozens of authors.

These books are available for anyone to sign out.  Just visit us at the Support Centre or contact us to find out how to we can get it to you.  If you have any suggestions on how we can improve our Lending Library, let us know!
