This section of the Métis Gathering site provides educators with instructional materials to incorporate Métis cultural and informational content into their teaching practices.
Here you will find videos, lesson plans, and other instructional support material. We highly recommend that these resources are not used as a substitute for connecting with Métis people and community-based organizations. Our hope is that this section provides teachers and educators a place to share content, stories, and experiences to support the incorporation of quality Métis content in their teaching strategies.
This section of the website hosts the Métis Learning Corner and other Michif language resources. Here, you will be able to access videos and find learning resources from Michif Corner, an open Michif class with Elder Norman Fleury and Angie Caron held during the Virtual Back to Batoche Celebration in the summer of 2020. Michif Corner will return for the 2021 Back to Batoche Days with the intent to offer Michif lessons throughout the year in partnership with our 12 regions under Métis Nation–Saskatchewan.

Métis Early Learning Resources:
This resource list was created to support the Michif Early Learning programs in Saskatchewan that were developed in partnership with Metis Nation–Saskatchewan, Canadian Geographic Society, Regina Catholic, Regina Public, Saskatoon Catholic, Saskatoon Public, Northern Lights and Île-à-la-Crosse School Divisions. The list is geared towards Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 3. It is a list intended to grow and evolve. It is important to note that some resources on this list may be regional specific and may not be applicable to all locations. Most resources recognize the work and contributions of the Gabriel Dumont Institute but also many other publishers as well as other Metis Nations in Canada.

“We become who we are by listening and watching. We make la galette by the feel of our grandma’s fingers. There are no written recipes for food or life but there are moments and memories that form the basis for Métis identity.”
