Physical Literacy: An Indigenous Journey for All


To support the implementation of the renewed Physical Education 20 and 30 curricula in Saskatchewan and the actualization of Inspiring Success: First Nations and Métis PreK-12 Education Policy Framework, the Saskatchewan Ministry of Education invited professional growth networks affiliated with the Saskatchewan Teachers’ Federation to submit a collaborative project proposal to develop materials to support First Nations, Métis and Inuit content, perspectives, and ways of knowing within the Physical Education 20 and 30 curricula. 

In support of the five Truth and Reconciliation’s Calls to Action pertaining to physical activity, physical literacy and sport, and to make a positive impact on Métis, First Nations and Inuit students, educators from the Saskatchewan Outdoor and Environmental Education Association and the Saskatchewan Physical Education Association collaborated to create this resource. 

This project was funded by the Ministry of Education with the Saskatchewan Teachers’ Federation providing support. All intellectual property created in fulfillment of the project is the property of the Saskatchewan Ministry of Education.
