Foundational Culture and Language Statement
To respect the worldview and language of the land of the Aboriginal people, the Department of Education, Culture, and Employment created two curricula: Dene Kede and Inuuqatigit. School staff are expected to bring attention to the Aboriginal Worldview in all of their teachings. They should use the document appropriate to their school and community.
These curricula are informed by a number of philosophical perspectives or worldviews that shape understanding of the Dene and Inuit core concepts as well as the traditions of lifelong learning. Dene Kede and Inuuqatigiit promote meaningful language use. Language is interwoven with culture and heritage through meaningful experiences.
