"Many teachers have expressed a need for some clear guidelines to begin the process of consulting with local Aboriginal communities to allow them to include Aboriginal people in their teaching.
'Working with Aboriginal Communities' provides advice on how to start this process and encourage a relationship with the local Aboriginal community.
Observing appropriate protocols when working with Aboriginal
people and their communities is critical to establishing
positive and respectful relationships...Providing Aboriginal people with the opportunity to become involved in school programs gives authenticity to local Aboriginal perspectives. Students, schools and communities all benefit from encouraging Aboriginal people to share their knowledge and life stories."
