French Posters: Les six cèdres Mini Poster Set (Set of six)
Country of Origin:
Size: 46 X 30 cm

Les six cèdres Mini Poster Set includes six mini posters in French.

This set of six Mini Posters in French features the core competencies, each represented by an animal (bear, beaver, orca, raven, salmon and wolf). The Mini Posters are designed for use with the whole class, and the language has been structured to reflect group conversation: “Today we connect with...” The posters can be displayed individually to focus on a selected core competency or can be displayed as a group.

Please note: Each animal in this story represents one of the BC Core Competencies. The characteristics and habits have been determined by the author and do not reflect any group of Indigenous peoples. Celestine Aleck, the illustrator, and Terri Mack, the publisher, both reflected and conversed on this prior to publication in that the characteristics and habits were deemed as that of anyone describing these animals from a mainstream perspective, not a Traditional Clan or Totem perspective.

DVD: The Art of Being Metis - Through the Teachings of the Canoe
Grade Levels: 8; 9; 10; 11; 12; University/College;

The Art Of Being Metis is a ten-part documentary (150 min) that tells of being Metis through the teachings of the traditional birch bark canoe. This includes the history, construct, use, as well as traditional harvesting, music, food and even healthful plants and medicines. Follow along and see a birch bark canoe envisioned, the materials harvested, all the stages of the build and finally launch. Each stage is filled with teachings about the land and the water, about taking what you need, not what you want, and respecting Mother Earth. This movie has been featured at the McMichael Art Gallery and The Montreal Indigenous Film Festival.

This documentary film follows Mahigan through all the facets of creating a traditional birch bark canoe. Much more than a how-to film, the viewer will be taken on a spiritual journey that contemplates the very close relationship the people of the Metis Nation and all indigenous peoples have, with Mother Earth. Mahigan will discuss the meaning of being Metis as well as what living a Metis lifestyle means. The viewer will also learn about the language, customs, culture, food and music of the Metis People. The Metis Nation is recognized by The United Nations.

Indigenous Peoples see themselves as an important part of nature, but not more or less important than any other creature in nature. A common respect for all living things and Mother Earth are central themes within indigenous cultures throughout the world. Indigenous peoples were the first conservationists and are leaders in earth stewardship today.

Mahigan shares many stories and teachings through the various parts of the creation of his birch bark canoe. From the selection and harvesting of the materials to the shaping of those materials into a finished canoe, viewers will learn about Metis and indigenous culture and perhaps even a little about themselves.

Divided into ten segments:
- The Blueprint for the Canoe...jiimaan (13:34 min.)
- Harvesting Birch Bark (11:03 min.)
- Harvesting Cedar (19:50 min.)
- Roots and Gum (21:24 min.)
- Finding Balance (11:24 min.)
- Challenging Times (16:41 min.)
- Back to Balance (20:47 min.)
- Patience (13:51 min.)
- The Art of the Canoe (15:38 min.)
- The Canoe is Born (10:22 min.)
