Santé des Premières Nations - L’eau potable manque encore

Santé des Premières Nations - L’eau potable manque encore | AboriginalLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it

"Pour plus du quart des membres des Premières Nations du Québec, l’eau de la principale source d’approvisionnement n’est pas potable à l’année. 54 % des adultes autochtones jouissent d’un revenu de moins de 20 000 $ par année, ainsi que 34 % des ménages. Et les problèmes de consommation de drogue des communautés autochtones du Québec se sont accentués depuis 2002. C’est ce qui ressort de l’enquête régionale sur la santé des Premières Nations du Québec, qui est basée sur des données de 2008, et qui a été rendue publique mercredi.

 

C’est ce que relevait hier Marjolaine Sioui, directrice générale de la Commission de santé et des services sociaux de l’Assemblée des Premières Nations du Québec et du Labrador (CSSSAPNQL), au moment du lancement du document, en compagnie du grand chef de l’APNQL, Ghislain Picard."

 

- Caroline Montpetit, Le Devoir

Young Entrepreneurs are Ready to Sell their Maliseet Children's Book

Young Entrepreneurs are Ready to Sell their Maliseet Children's Book | AboriginalLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it


It’s been almost a year since JEDI first met some industrious First Nation students at George Street Middle School (GSMS) in Fredericton, NB. At that time, the students had started to write and illustrate a children’s book for the entrepreneurship program that GSMS participates in every year  through The Learning Partnership. 

Last week, the students celebrated the delivery of the first hard copies of their newly published book. The authors and illustrators of the book are Baillie Sacobie, Theo Polchies, Amber Solomon, and Brooke Sacobie, all from Kingsclear First Nation.

Their book, titled “Weyossisok” which means ‘little animals’ in the
Woolastooqiyik language, is an early childhood picture book written in both
Maliseet and English. The book features a few different animals that are
important to the Maliseet culture and includes short sentences on each
animal.

The copy, discovered more than a decade ago, has been restored and was screened in Texas this week, ahead of its commercial release later this year.

Native American Representation in Children's Literature: Challenging the People of the Past Narrative, by Julie Stivers

Native American Representation in Children's Literature: Challenging the People of the Past Narrative, by Julie Stivers | AboriginalLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it


Are you a librarian...a teacher...or a parent?  Let’s think for a moment about the books we own that feature Native American main characters.  What are their settings?  In the past?  Modern day?  If the text does not make this clear—if, for example, there are anthropomorphic animals—what are they wearing?  Baseball caps and modern clothes or ‘leather and feathers’?
