State of Métis Nation Learning (2005)

The author of this document provides both historical and current contexts for the Métis Nation, a distinct society within the Aboriginal peoples of Canada, and outlines a strategy for educational change.

The author says dialogue on educational change must begin with the assumption that the best place for the early education of young Métis children is within the family and the community. She calls upon the Métis National Council and its governing members to develop and undertake an education agenda.

The author notes that Métis Nation languages, culture, history, identity and systems of knowledge have been eroded over centuries and the damage cannot be repaired in a year. Therefore, a long-term commitment, coupled with stable and sufficient funding, is required to bring about meaningful change.
