Good Day. FNT2T Life Long Learning shared a resource, Medicine Wheel Education, back in October during Orange Shirt Day which is a day to remember the impact of residential schools and survivors. Medicine Wheel Education describes themselves as publishers of culturally authentic Indigenous books, resources and tools specialized for moral and cultural education. Each book teaches a positive moral message designed to invite all children, youth and adults to engage and participate in culture with authenticity and respect. They have developed an Orange Shirt Day learning package and many other books/resources.

The most recent book will be published in May. It is titled Gikenim Giniigi’igoog (Meet Your Family). This book was translated to Ojibwe by Jason & Nancy Jones who are from Nigigoonsiminikaaning (Red Gut) First Nation (Ontario), so the Ojibwe dialect will vary from Treaty 2 Territory but it is an important step in the development of Ojibwe language resources. The author is David Bouchard and the illustrator is Kristy Cameron. The book will also have reasonably priced lesson plans to accompany the book(s). Most of the books published by Medicine Wheel Education offer accompanying lesson plan(s).

They have also developed a Medicine Wheel Online Classroom that offers seven unique classes and lessons for all ages to teachers and students. The stories/lessons vary in Nation background and teachings. A single user can purchase access to the virtual classroom for $5 per month or $50 for the year. There are also subscription price options for a single classroom, a school, and a district where 30% of the funds are given back to Indigenous authors.
