First Nations, Métis, and Inuit Studies provides secondary
students in Ontario schools with a broad range of knowledge related to Aboriginal
peoples to help them better understand Aboriginal issues of public interest
discussed at the local, regional, and national levels. Students will develop
the skills necessary to discuss issues and participate in public affairs.
Through their involvement in Native studies, they will increase their awareness
and understanding of the history, cultures, world views, and contributions of
Aboriginal peoples in Canada.
