French-language resource

ISBN: 978-1-897328-89-7 

This 55-page teacher’s guide facilitates the discovery of the lifestyle of 19th century Canadian Prairie Metis by examining the values, beliefs, traditions and customs of this people and by better understanding their socio-political organization.

L’Éclaireur provides the teacher with ways to explore an Aboriginal culture (Metis) by the reading of informative texts, with skits reinforcing oral communication, with quiz-games and identity-construction activities allowing students to make connections with their own life experiences. Included is a primary source document, dated 1845, giving a detailed account of a bison hunt.
