Abstract: This document is a first step in gathering and disseminating effective practices,
programs, activities and strategies that are effective in meeting the educational needs
of First Nations and Métis students. The purpose of this endeavour is to provide
teachers, administrators and others interested in the education process with an
avenue to share experiences that effectively increased understanding and awareness of
Aboriginal cultures, issues and perspectives and which support Aboriginal students in
achieving greater success and improved satisfaction in school. In providing other
educators with successful ideas, these initiatives may be broadly implemented in
Saskatchewan's schools. This report also anticipates that, as programs are shared,
developed and put into practice, educators will continue to communicate their
experiences and suggestions with the SSTA. In this way, both Aboriginal and non-
Aboriginal students alike will benefit.
