Learning about Canadian Aboriginal Culture

When it comes to learning about Canadian aboriginal culture, The Birch Bark Basket program in Alberta, Canada is among the best programs for young children. Combining games, storytelling, dance and other activities, the program reflects both historic and modern times. The Birch Bark Basket program was developed by a committee of several Canadian Aboriginal individuals across the province of Alberta. Heather Snider from the Alberta Resource Centre for Quality Enhancement said the program stems from parent programs which need methods of connecting with the family. This unique program has been introduced in many Canadian city and parent link centers. More information on the Birch Bark Basket Early Ed. Program: is at www.arcqe.ca/birchbark/birch_bark.htm
