  • A unique collection of student books that provide an opportunity for students to learn from various historical perspectives

  • The Fast Forward feature links history with current events and people, which students can relate to
  • The Playback feature, offered throughout each book, provides and opportunity for students to demonstrate what they have learned
  • In Canada's First Peoples, we explore the diverse cultures of the peoples who made up Canada from its very early days. Their societies are profiled for each geographical region - from the Atlantic to the Pacific to the Arctic - with detailed descriptions of both the similarities and the differences in culture, stories, and beliefs.

    The text is richly illustrated throughout with the and stories of the First Peoples, as well as maps, photos, and artifacts. Activities draw the reader into societies that are both old and contemporary.

    Canada's First Peoples connects to the present with an account of the relationship between the First Peoples and the newcomers to Canada. The recent struggles to obtain self-government and renew Native cultures suggest a new age for the First Peoples that seemed unlikely thirty or forty years ago.

    Like other titles in this series, the book is based on and carefully linked to the popular CBC/Radio-Canada series Canada: A People's History, available to schools across the country on video and DVD.
