THE FRASER RIVER JOURNEY

http://www.fraserjourney.ca/

The following from the website:
The Fraser River Journey documentary follows a group of 12 B.C. First Nations youth on a raft trip down the Fraser River. Wielding waterproof video cameras, the youths set out to document their adventures on one of the most stunning and diverse river systems in the world. In the process they learn important things about their province, their heritage, and themselves.
The documentary film and this website were created to help us take a brief look at the past, present, and future of native life in B.C. One goal of this project is to explore how Aboriginal youth can develop an identity and a place in contemporary society. Another is to show how adults are finding ways to help Aboriginal youth participate in a culture that is adapting, regenerating and changing.
Available on the website are various resources for use in the classroom.  Worth checking out, I quite enjoyed the documentary but I haven’t had the opportunity to use it in the classroom myself.  I would love to hear your thoughts on the documentary in the classroom if you have used it.  Send your reviews to bcabeducation@gmail.com.
