Aboriginal Education and Native Studies Resources from David Spencer's Education Paragon

  • Connect with Aboriginal elders and educators and join the First Nations, Métis & Inuit Education Association of Ontario formerly the Native Education Association of Ontario Circle (NEAO Circle) and previously The Aboriginal and Environmental Education Circle (AEE Circle). The NEAO Circle was a professional learning and sharing network of educators, teachers, college instructors, university professors, Aboriginal elders and leaders. Through e-mail, they shared First Nation, Metis and Inuit and native studies resources, curriculum and teaching strategies that will help Canadian teachers integrate school curriculum with current cultural, environmental and historical contributions of our Canadian First Nations, Inuit and Metis brothers and sisters.
  • Join the First Nations, Métis & Inuit Education Association of Ontario on Facebook.
  • See photos and read about past gatherings of The Aboriginal and Environmental Education Circle (AEE Circle).

Aboriginal Technology

  1. NativeTech.org An internet resource for indigenous ethno-technology focusing on the arts of Eastern Woodland Indian Peoples, providing historical & contemporary background with instructional how-to's and reference.
  2. First Nations Technology Council - British Columbia, Canada, "supports the full integration of technologies to improve the quality of life for all First Nations in British Columbia".
  3. The First Nations Connectivity Research Project investigates issues related to Internet Communication Technology (ICT) development projects such as proposed by the Provincial and Federal governments for First Nations communities in British Columbia - specfically, the extension of last mile broadband connectivity to 118 unserved communities in remote areas of the province. The implications of broadband access in formerly underserved or unserved communities promises many potential social benefits, but needs to be carried out carefully, in collaborative fashion, and in accordance with each community's social and technological requirements and goals.
  4. GeoConnections for Aboriginal Communities Location-based information connects Aboriginal people and their communities, enabling them to map their futures, manage resources, and capitalize on opportunities.
