Welcome to the 4 Seasons of Reconciliation portal created for the Alberta Education community, presented at the 3rd Annual First Nations, Métis & Inuit Education Gathering April 18 – 20 in Edmonton.
In this portal, you can preview the demos for three units: the Professional Development Unit, the Secondary History Unit and the Post-Secondary Unit.
Let's take a few moments to hear from our Indigenous collaborators and co-creators and watch the introduction video that will provide you with an overview before going further.
While our team was filming for three upcoming short documentaries on reconciliation this past summer, we visited Alberta and captured some of the below leaders. Here are some short highlights:
Below you can view two short trailers of films produced by our team that will be included in the resource as bonus features. Waniska - an Awakening of Indigenous Knowledge premiered at the Elders conference in Regina at the First Nations University this winter.

Post Secondary Unit Overview
Each of the three units provide the basic foundational primer Canadians have not yet learned in school. The units meet the Calls to Action and are meant to enhance (not replace) local Indigenous knowledge. We hope that that these units provide a bridge that facilitates direct learning relationships with Indigenous Peoples, Nations and organizations. With this foundational unit, connections with Indigenous Peoples are the natural next step. Online portals and multi-media elements cannot replace the importance of being in direct contact with the Indigenous Peoples in your region - we hope these serve as a building bloc to assist with those connections.
Here is the quick overview of each before accessing the portals:
