Understanding the literacy rates of indigenous children on reserves in Canada

Faculty Advisor




literacy, indigenous peoples

Abstract (summary)

The detailed research project our team has completed was focused on literacy levels within first nations communities in Canada. As well, we identified a lack of educational initiatives for First Nations, Metis, and Inuit people across Canada. We first identified the challenges and problems that Indigenous people faced when trying to enhance their literacy skills and educational levels. Then we completed a local and global study of programs and opportunities currently available to enhance literacy and learnings. After that, we completed a study of the current gaps in the system and the levers of change that our team decided would be most beneficial. We believe that indigenous people in Canada deserve the same educational funding and levels as the rest of Canadians. Interdisciplinary Dialogue Project.
