As BC is diverse and each district may represent several First Nations and have students from other First Peoples groups, we have identified several that have shared their work publicly.
FNESC Authentic Resources
The First Nations Education Steering Committee (FNESC) and First Nations Schools Association (FNSA) have developed the Authentic First Peoples Resources (K-9) guide. The guide identifies currently available authentic First Peoples texts for use by students and teachers. FNESC has its own evaluation process and criteria. ERAC has evaluated many, but not all, of the resources listed in the guide. Please check ERAC’s collection at erack12.essentialdemo.com to see which of the resources have been ERAC evaluated and approved. And, if you would like a resource to be evaluated, please submit the request here
