ViaSport British Columbia spear-headed this project to create an online resource for recreational leaders. This online module is designed to educate sport and recreation leaders about important aspects of Aboriginal culture, and to provide best practices on how to incorporate this awareness into their programming. With history, teachings, personal experiences and resources built into the module, leaders can walk away with a better understanding of how to ensure Aboriginal people participate in sport and recreation in an environment that is inclusive, safe and respectful.
After analysis of the audience and content provided by the working group – including members of the Aboriginal Sport, Recreation and Physical Activity Partners Council, and a member of the Province of BC: Ministry of Community, Sport, and Cultural Development – a storyboard was written adapted from a variety of provided video, and written resources. We were fortunate to interview First Nation elders for the inclusion of their voices in this project.
