Integrating Indigenous Perspectives Across Curricula Using Coast Salish Art

The Salish Weave Collection is a private collection of contemporary Coast Salish art that weaves together the distinctive forms and designs of established and emerging artists. The collection stems from and resides mainly on traditional Coast Salish Territories. The purpose of the collection is to support and promote awareness of artists who are contributing to the revival of Coast Salish art.

 

Some works in the Salish Weave Collection come in carefully curated box sets, which have been gifted to local school districts operating within Coast Salish Territory, including Saanich, Victoria, Sooke, and Cowichan. These prints are available to educators for classroom investigation and inquiry through their InEd departments, District Learning Commons, or online.

 

We welcome you to attend this introduction to the prints from the Salish Weave Box Sets, and learn how one might integrate this resource into and across curricula at all grade levels. Participants will receive a resource list that include links to lesson plans and useful videos to use immediately with students.
