Nutrition and traditional diets / culture and storytelling
Our Food Our Stories: Celebrating our Gifts from the Creator

A Nutrition resource for Aboriginal Head Start in Urban and Northern Communities, this unique collection of traditional recipes and customs celebrates our diversity and cultures across Canada. Aboriginal Head Start families from First Nations, Inuit and Métis backgrounds share stories and recipes about Hunting, Fishing and Gathering, that connect us to who we are and where we come from.




Notre cuisine, nos histoires : Célébrons les dons du Créateur

Voici une ressource sur l’alimentation pour les centres du Programme d’aide préscolaire aux Autochtones (PAPA) dans les collectivités urbaines et nordiques. Ce recueil de recettes traditionnelles, d’anecdotes et de photos des centres est aussi un livre d’histoires; il raconte qui nous sommes en tant que Premières Nations, Inuits et Métis au Canada, en décrivant les aliments que nous mangeons.

Honouring Our Elders: A guide to Elder Participation in AHS programs

This book provides Aboriginal Head Start staff and communities with ideas and suggestions on recruiting Elders, orienting them to the classroom setting, and involving them in Early Childhood Programs.

With photos and examples of Elders who are active in AHS sites across BC, it acknowledges their contributions and important role in teaching our children. Tools for cultural protocols and preschool licensing requirements are also included.



NOTE: You can find the accompanying video and brochure to Honouring our Elders in Free Resources




Cultural Calendar  [coming in 2020]

This 2007 calendar was a celebration of Cultural Curriculum ideas from BC’s 12 urban AHS programs.

The large laminated perpetual calendar shares language and cultural activities from programs around the province and allows space for adding your own ideas. It can be written on with washable markers and erased, making it easy to use over and over.


The new smaller edition will include updated language and content. Coming Soon!
