Métis Foundational Knowledge Themes
Rupertsland Centre for Teaching & Learning (RCTL) is committed to supporting educators as they develop their personal and professional understandings about Métis identity, culture, and history.
Métis educators, Nation leaders, and cultural experts collectively agreed on the following five themes to support educators as they develop their foundational knowledge about the Métis in Alberta.
Each theme shares information about Métis history, identity, and life in Alberta. Métis voices are authentically shared through the themes, woven together with academic research to best share the Métis story in Alberta.
All of the Métis Foundational Knowledge Themes are freely available online as digital PDFs. Click on an image below to access the digital version of each Métis Foundational Knowledge Theme:
The Métis Foundational Knowledge Themes will be available in print for purchase in 2023. If you would like to be informed when they become available, sign up:
