L’Éclaireur — Tout ce que vous voulez savoir sur la chasse au bison des Métis des Prairies canadiennes
*Approved by Le Centre de leadership et d'évaluation for the Ontario Ministry of Education.
This 55-page Teacher’s Guide explores the lifestyle of 19th-century Canadian Prairie Métis by examining their values, beliefs, traditions and customs, and promotes a better understanding of their socio-political organization.
L’Éclaireur provides teachers with ways to explore an Indigenous culture (Métis) through the reading of informative texts, skits reinforcing oral communication, quizzes/games, and identity construction activities that allow students to make connections with their own life experiences. Includes a primary source document from 1845 that gives a detailed account of a bison hunt.
