For resources applicable to Indigenous Languages, the Manitoba Aboriginal Languages Strategy has developed a database of resources both in and about Indigenous languages. Go to the Manitoba Curriculum Support Centre at http://mbcsc.edu.gov.mb.ca/ and search “mals”. You can then narrow your search. We invite you to search for these resources internally as well using the WSD Library Support Services at http://www1.youseemore.com/wsd1/default.asp and have them couriered to your school. If WSD is missing a resource, please contact one of the Aboriginal Education Consultants: Bobbie-Jo Leclaire firstname.lastname@example.org or Rina Bright email@example.com
