Background Paper for the "National Dialogue on Aboriginal Learning" - November 13 and 14, 2005

By: Canadian Council on Learning (CCL), Dr. Marie Battiste

This background paper was prepared for the National Dialogue on Aboriginal Learning conference, held in Ottawa in November 2005. It was prepared in response to a call from the Canadian Council on Learning (CCL) to support the developmental work of the Aboriginal Learning Knowledge Centre.

The authors describe the context for the CCL Aboriginal Learning Knowledge Centre; the principles established to guide the CCL in developing the centre; the learning contexts of each of the First Nations, Inuit and M├ętis; and potential priorities and directions for an Aboriginal Learning Knowledge Centre.
