This workshop is designed to be an introduction to historical implications of concepts of assimilation through understanding of the policies and legislations between the Crown and Indigenous peoples. By understanding history through an Indigenous lens, short and long term impacts of forced assimilation policies will be revealed. Understanding these historical policies and legislations will contribute to the advancement of reconciliation. This workshop is not intended to be a comprehensive nor exhaustive exploration of Indigenous history in Canada. The intent is to build awareness and curiosity in teachers to explore more on their own.
