four_directions_teachings.jpg presents a series of First Nations teachings from the Mi’kmaq, Ojibwe, Cree, Mohawk and Blackfoot nations. This beautiful site honours oral traditions by creating an environment where the visitor is encouraged to listen with intent as each elder or traditional teacher shares a teaching from their perspective on the richness and value of cultural traditions from their nation.  In addition, the site provides curriculum packages to further explore the vast richness of knowledge and cultural philosophy that is introduced within each teaching.turtle.jpg

Developer, Jennifer Wemigwans, has experience as a literacy teacher and has combined this knowledge with her expertise as a filmmaker to bring us this rich, unique resource. Canada’s National Indigenous Literacy Association (NILA) was a partner in developing this project.
