I have found this website which allows for those who are interested in the history of the First Nations peoples to understand the First Nations peoples through the differng leves of contact this have had throughout history. This resource really breaks down how contact has directly affected the First Nations people.

i believe this resource is very benefical in allowing elementary students to understand the process of the learning circle into the classroom. This resource provides teachers and students with different activities that have been provided by the First Nations Confederacy of Cultural Education Centres.

This website provides many Indigenous resources and is easy to navigate. The categories are sorted by subject area/grade level. When you select a subject and then a grade level, it will redirect you to a new page that will then list that grades Alberta Program of Studies Specific Outcomes. Under each outcome there are links to resources, many of which are sourced from Indigenous Peoples, that relate to that particular outcome.
