A directed drawing story
Told and Illustrated by Quentin Harris
‘Uy’ skweyul friends,
This story goes out to our indigenous learners and their families in our biweekly reach out. Feel free to share it with your school and teachers. It is a directed drawing story of ‘Belonging & Bear’. We are using this platform to share our four Enhancement Agreement Goals and the eight Teaching Animals, unveiled in March 2020.
As my provincial Ministry of Education Zoom meeting reminded us this week, never before have Indigenous knowledge and teachings been more important ~ and teaching and sharing of Indigenous knowledge is an expected part of a child’s learning. Quentin’s weekly Youtube ‘Indigenous Thought of the Day’ is another great way for educators to regularly embed Indigenous ways into teaching and learning.
Be well my friends ~ ‘Mental Health and Wellness… of us all… is more important than ever’.
Huy ch q’u Silye’yu~ thank you friends and relatives!
