Resource Description

An alphabet book celebrating and acknowledging Indigenous history, culture, and people, “A is for Aboriginal” uses the letters of the alphabet to explore various facets of Indigenous culture and tradition in a poetical and lyrical manner. Interesting information is revealed with the help of colourful illustrations, and readers are supported with a comprehensive glossary in the second half of the resource. Suitable for students at every elementary grade level, this book lends itself particularly well as a read-aloud, allowing teachers to deepen Indigenous understanding and perspectives in the classroom and embed Indigenous content into lessons. This resource may also serve as a springboard for further research about the topics broached or can be used as a model-text to inspire students to create an alphabet book for other Indigenous peoples or cultures.
