Discussion: Learning More about a First Nation or the Inuit People


Throughout Lessons 4 and 5, we have discussed many First Nations of the eastern and western areas of Canada that helped form our country. Identify a culture/geographic area you want to know more about. This may or may not be the people you want to explore for Final Project: Community Overview.


  • Select a geographic/cultural area to research.
  • Research the following areas:
  • The present Canadian provinces and/or states the First Nation or Inuit People are from.
  • Which languages do members of this First Nation speak?
  • Which cultural practices did they have, and are these practices still being practiced?
  • Why is this information about a First Nations useful for human service practitioners?
  • Research the First Nation to find answers to the questions above. Use this information to develop a comprehensive description of the First Nation you have chosen.
  • Post your description to Discussion 3: Learning More about a First Nation or the Inuit People.
  • Read other descriptions and respond to at least two postings, making a thoughtful comment or asking a question.
