More, Arthur J., Ed.
This catalog describes 263 Indian education projects in British Columbia schools from kindergarten through grade 12. The information was gathered from previous editions of the survey supplemented by the responses of coordinators of projects, including projects in provincial, Indian Band, federal, private, and parochial schools. Indian education projects in British Columbia fall under the following categories: (1) Native language development and implementation; (2) Native Indian curriculum development and implementation; (3) Native Indian para-professional workers program; (4) Native Indian alternative programs; and (5) Native Indian preventative programs designed to strengthen academic skills. This survey provides school districts and other institutions with important information for decisions concerning programming and implementing Indian education projects. Project descriptions are grouped according to the major Indian language or culture areas, including Athapaskan, Bella Coola, Coast Salish, Haida, Interior Salish, Kootenay, Kwakiutl, Nuu-Chah-Nulth, and Tsimshian. A miscellaneous section provides information about programs operated by the Ministry of Education and other institutions. Projects within each area are listed alphabetically by community. Keywords are assigned to summarize the major components of each project and a listing of keywords is included. For each project a contact person for further information is provided. The handbook also describes the role of the Ministry of Education in implementing Indian education projects and other institutions that provide such programs. The appendices include general descriptions of the home school coordinator program and the Native Home School Counsellors Association. An index of keywords is also provided. (LP)
