Nurturing Indigenous Identity in an Early Years Centre
Samantha and the team at the EarlyON program in Baawaating (Sault Ste. Marie) believe that Indigenous children must learn about the forces that shape them.
Indigenous identity must be fostered at every opportunity.

The culture of First Nations’ children -- their languages and kinship systems -- must be modelled, taught and celebrated so that Indigenous children grow to be proud of who they are.

This session will share a snapshot of the unique history of First Nations people from the perspective of Indigenous early childhood educators. How that perspective inspired the methodology used to create an Indigenous culturally based early years family resource centre that places the knowledge and worldview of First Nations’ peoples at the centre of learning for parents/caregivers and their children.
