Teaching Resource Centre


Welcome! The educational resources you find here are for Indigenous and non-Indigenous educators teaching students and learners of all ages.

Here, you will find:

  • Lesson plans developed with an Indigenous perspective for teaching:
    • Indigenous, land-based skills and knowledge;
    • Indigenous languages;
    • Mainstream K-12 subjects infused with Indigenous knowledge.
  • Some lesson plans are adaptable for professional development opportunities.
  • Videos that can be used as part of lesson plans or on their own.
  • Helpful materials for educators to:
    • Evaluate your and your learners’ experiences with a lesson;
    • Create your own lesson plans using templates with an Indigenous-based, student-centred approach.


NCCIE, in collaboration with the First Nations University Elders’ Council (kêhtê-ayak), is pleased to present these five videos for you to watch as an introduction to learning about working with Elders in the classroom and throughout research projects.
