Welcome teachers and student campaigners! We are so happy to see how many schools and universities are getting involved in Moose Hide Campaign Day this year. Here you will find more information about youth workshops, teacher resources and our art/video project challenge.
Our workshops are pre-recorded and designed to easily fit into teachers’ schedules, while appealing to various age groups. Please feel free to preview all the workshops to find the one that best fits your classroom community, or work your way through all of them over the coming weeks and months.
For information about the main workshops, please see the Workshops page.
Content warning: Please be aware that sensitive matters around violence may be discussed. Additionally, as an educator, we encourage you to preview the workshops before sharing them with your students. Some of the stories could be triggering for some individuals as they face the topic of violence. Some content is more appropriate for younger audiences.
Please remember to give students context and be prepared to have open discussions with them in class. Many of the proposed activities in the educator guides involve action projects to encourage students to be a part of the solution. We recommend you have supports, such as a guidance counsellor, available for students who may need assistance or additional time to process. Please visit the Wellness Centre to discover other support resources available.

6. Réalités des Femmes Autochtones
Ce webinaire sert d’introduction aux réalités autochtones, particulièrement des femmes et des filles. Des concepts clés seront discutés, ainsi qu’un survol des politiques, institutions et législations qui ont contribué à la situation contemporaine.
7. Le parcours de Kijâtai
Kijâtai est née à Val-d’Or au Québec. Son père Anishnabe, survivant des écoles résidentielles, n’a jamais pu partager sa culture avec sa lle et sa mère non-autochtone a élevé sa famille seule. Délaissant ses racines autochtones durant sa jeunesse, une lutte d’identité a bientôt suivi.
TECH GUIDE for Educators
Moose Hide Campaign art/video challenge
Get innovative and creative, and join the Moose Hide Campaign Challenge!
Invite your students to think creatively about reconciliation and respect through an art or video project and have a chance to win prizes and see your project shared across Canada.
Students can work individually or in a group of up to 4 (or as appropriate based on local Covid protocols) to create either a video project or an art piece (painting, drawing, sculpture, collage, etc) that speaks to them about the themes of reconciliation and/or respect. It may be necessary to invite some brainstorming about these ideas first. Reconciliation between communities, within oneself, with mother earth; respect for women, respect within relationships, respect for the water or other elements, etc. We are looking forward to the different interpretations and the creativity that can flow when learners are free to think outside the box about what is meaningful to them.
There will be four categories: Kindergarten to Grade 2, grades 3 to 5, grades 6 to 8 and grades 9 to 12. There is no limit to the number of submissions per school. Video submission should be between 30 seconds and 3 minutes, while art pieces must be photographed in their original form and sent via email. All submissions must be original.
We are going to be giving cash prizes which students can donate to a local charity of their choice. The top prize in the country will win an iPad for each member of the group (up to 4) and the winning submission will be shared throughout our Moose Hide Campaign networks nationally. The deadline for submissions will be March 12, 2021.
