Indigenous Voices Resources

To accompany our 10-part video series, we have created a PDF booklet, Resources for Teachers and Lifelong Learners.

This 53-page PDF booklet features chapters for each of the videos and includes:

• definitions of words heard in the film

• suggested questions for teachers

• links to additional resources for further learning

In addition, separate chapters from this booklet pertaining to each video are available for download on the webpage for each video.
