Circling the Drum: A National Aboriginal Family Literacy Strategy (2007)

A Resource Manual for Practitioners

This document was prepared by the National Association of Friendship Centres, which represents more than a hundred organizations that provide programs and services to Aboriginal people living in urban areas.

The authors discuss the vision underlying the strategy; summarize various reports leading up to the preparation of the strategy; and make recommendations for action in developing Aboriginal family literacy services.

The authors note that an Aboriginal family literacy strategy must be grounded in distinct Aboriginal ways; take into consideration Aboriginal concepts of family; respect Aboriginal values related to literacy; and include ways to build cross-cultural capacity.
