Aboriginal Student Engagement and Achievement
Format: Paperback
  • Aboriginal people want an education that reflects their cultural values and linguistic heritages, an education that will foster their children's engagement and identity and not marginalize them as learners. This book turns the spotlight on a rare success story – one Ontario high school's attempt to recognize Aboriginal students' cultural and academic needs while helping them build relationships with non-Aboriginal students. Aboriginal students constitute one of the fastest-growing groups in public schools. This timely study not only reveals how the current system is failing Indigenous students – it offers recommendations for enhancing their achievement levels in Canada and abroad.

Accounting for Genocide
Format: Paperback
  • Accounting for Genocide is an original and controversial book that retells the history of the subjugation and ongoing economic marginalization of Canada’s Indigenous peoples. Its authors demonstrate the ways in which successive Canadian governments have combined accounting techniques and economic rationalizations with bureaucratic mechanisms—soft technologies—to deprive Native peoples of their land and natural resources and to control the minutiae of their daily economic and social lives. Particularly shocking is the evidence that federal and provincial governments are today still prepared to use legislative and fiscal devices in order to facilitate the continuing exploitation and damage of Indigenous people’s lands.

America's Gift
Format: Paperback
  • What the world owes to the Americas and their first inhabitants

    The world was never the same after 1492. The encounter of two “old worlds” gave rise to a truly new world on both sides of the Atlantic. America’s Gift recalls the full significance of the contact made between Europe and the Americas, mistakenly called the “New World.” As Columbian intellectual German Arciniegas wrote: “From questions of astronomy to the food on our table, America began transforming Europe the moment European explorers set foot on American soil. And what a transformation it was!” Authors Käthe Roth and Denis Vaugeois ably use an alphabetical glossary to connect the particular to the universal as they reveal some of the vast contributions the Americas and their original inhabitants made to the world. America’s Gift takes readers from one epiphany to another. In other words, Europe became a new world in the true sense of the term.

An Anishnaabe Look at Exploring Measurement
Format: Paperback
  • The contemporary definition of measurement is finding the size, quantity, or amount of an object using a measuring tool. Some examples of measuring tools are a ruler, measuring tape, cup, thermometer, money, weighing scale and a clock.

    Anishnaabe people of Turtle Island also had notions of measurement that were based on quality rather than on quantity.

    This workbook is intended for the reader/learner to learn and practice the skills of measurement that are needed today. It will also help to build the reader’s knowledge and skills of measurement, and the reader can do the majority of the exercises on their own.

    This workbook will also give the reader the ability to further their understanding of measurement from a contemporary and an Anishnaabe view.
