Sharing Through Story

The Sharing Through Story platform focuses on Indigenous texts and literacy resources that educators can implement in their classrooms to acknowledge and celebrate the original storytellers. These resources include a Literacy Seed Kit (a list of "culturally relevant resources," and texts accompanied by teaching guides); an Indigenous Literature Kit (a more than 300-page professional development tool for educators to advance reconciliation); interviews with authors and educators (as Cree First Nation Elder Jerry Wood notes, storytelling includes "unwritten books and our way of teaching and learning,"); and guides on selecting Indigenous texts for classrooms (with an eye towards authenticity and respect). This resource collection is closely aligned with its parent organization's mission. Empowering the Spirit curates content that "increase[s] awareness and understanding of First Nations, Metis and Inuit histories, perspectives and ways of knowing." These resources were created in partnership with the Alberta Regional Professional Development Consortia and thanks to funding from Alberta Education.
