The following appeared in a recent newsletter circulated to the members of the Millbrook & Cavan Historical Society:
With no chance to gather these days for our regular monthly meetings to learn about aspects of our history, this is an ideal time to take advantage of the free education kit that has been designed to help both educators and Ontario students learn about Indigenous treaties, territories and history.
This tool kit has been developed by Carolyn King, former elected chief of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. It was released in recognition of Ontario’s Treaty Recognition Week that falls during the first week of November.
Part of the Moccasin Identifier Project, the kit outlines lesson plans for students from Grades 1 to 8, but all that it teaches and suggests as activities can be absorbed and used by “students” of any age. Here’s free and fascinating content for our COVID-induced spare time. You will find it on the Moccasin Identifier website.
