Language allows us to share and communicate culture, world views, knowledge systems, values, traditions, customs, history, spirituality, and social and political identity to future generations. The Michif language is integral to our sense of self and a key aspect of self-determination as Métis.
Developing a meaningful curriculum
Our Michif language project team has been hard at work developing a detailed and meaningful Michif curriculum. 102 lesson plans have been developed for use in schools, communities, and daycare centres. These lesson plans also include additional extras such as recipes, games, traditional knowledge and audio files to support learning.
Perhaps even more exciting is the development of a 1,000 Michif Glossary. The first of its kind! A project report will be available soon. Make sure you are subscribed to receive emails from BCMF to be notified when it is ready.
