English First Peoples 12 is a four-credit course that fulfills the English Language Arts 12 and Indigenous-Focused graduation requirements. The central question for this English First Peoples 12 course is, “How can sharing wisdom and stories build good relations in a diverse world?” Indigenous culture has a rich tradition of storytelling, and these stories continue to be created right up to the present day. In this course, students will have an opportunity to explore a wide variety of genres of stories, including a feature film, a novel, short stories, poems, songs, oral stories, children’s picture books, podcasts, and graphic novels. This course was designed by Christian educators in consultation with Indigenous Christian educators. It seeks to be sensitive to the needs of both the Christian community and the Indigenous community. This course encourages students to approach the text and content of the course with humility and with an attitude of love, recognizing the harm that the church has caused in the past and moving toward a time of better relations. The goal is that this course will be uplifting, highlighting the humour, creativity, and imaginativeness of Indigenous voices from across Canada and the United States.
