First Nations school in BC passes traditional ways on to next generation - Toronto Star

First Nations school in BC passes traditional ways on to next generation - Toronto Star | AboriginalLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it

"Specialty schools are all the rage across the country — art schools, sport academies, International Baccalaureate — but those that offer lessons on deer skinning and medicinal roots are few and far between.

Chief Atahm is one of the handful of specialty schools for First Nations students in the province and is the oldest language and immersion program in B.C. — celebrating its 21st anniversary this year.

The students are taught in Secwepemctsin from nursery and the teachers won’t instruct in English until Grade 4. They read books especially written in or translated into Secwepemctsin by school staff."

Stone flakes found during archaeological dig in Moncton - New Brunswick - CBC News | AboriginalLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it

"Archaeologists searching for First Nations artifacts at the Moncton airport are wrapping up their dig.

The work was being done to preserve any artifacts before a new runway at the airport is built.

Archaeologists dug close to 700 holes looking for evidence that aboriginal people used the area hundreds of years ago.

Albert Ferguson, the manager of archaeological services for the provincial government, said in three of those holes they found a total of seven stone flakes, indicating aboriginal people were using stone tools in the area.

...

He estimates the flakes to be about 600 years old. The seven flakes will be stored in Fredericton. "
