High School Students Create Educational Videos after Learning about Treaties

An educational process undertaken by Saskatchewan’s Prairie Valley School Division in 2012 sought to engage students in the capturing of stories and deep inquiry about personal and regional historical relationships to the land and the Treaties through photography, video, interviews and field trips. The 8 schools involved (3 of which were First Nations schools) in the region of Fort Qu’Appelle, Indian Head and Crooked Lake visited each others communities to hear multiple perspectives about the importance of a conscious relationship to the land. The students learned how to transform the footage, audio and stills they had collected into 12 documentaries that will add to the Treaty awareness educational materials for the Prairie Valley School Division.
