INDIAN EDUCATION RESOURCES CENTER
HUT 0-12/ U.B.C. AN EXPLORATORY LOOK AT INDIAN EDUCATION FOR B. C,
ALVIN A. MCKAY/ DIRECTOR ~ IERC.
Our various contacts with teachers, schools, teacher workshops, counsellors, students and concerned Indian and non-Indian people
have brought to our attention that there are many needs of Indian Education that are currently demanding and outstanding. These needs are related to such areas as:
1) school drop-outs.
2) secondary school programming and streaming.
3) curriculum enrichment, innovation, supplementation.
4) practical utilization of the various counselling
services.
5) practical use of resource personnel.
6) more use of teacher workshop - inservice
programs.
7) subject and age retardation.
8) tutoring services.
9) cultural barriers.
10) teacher background regarding Indians.
The Resources Center is faced with the problem of providing
package deal or recipe-type answers to the above needs. This approach is
impractical due to the diversified make-up of the Indian population as to
culture, tribal barriers, socio-economic base etc.  It is also beyond
our present resources to attempt to reach all of the schools etc. to
elaborate on the above needs.
I appeal to all those involved in some area of Indian Education to consider and plan some action with reference to these needs.
Suggested, possible ways to meet the above needs:
1) School drop-outs -
- does your school have up-to-date statistics
on this?
- has there been an analytical - diagnostic
treatment of these drop-out students (are
drop-outs in vocational or other training;
full time employment; or are they real
drop-outs, and if so, are there preventative
measures set down to avoid future drop-outs?)
2) Secondary School Programming and Streaming -
- was there actual assessment of Indian students
potential at beginning of school term (and
not just placement based on the fallacy of
Indian students retardation in years and
subject areas etc.)  Students who are placed
on programs without actual assessment are - 2 -
(cont.).... 2)  easily bored, disheartened and disinterested,
and this situation breeds trouble makers,
delinquents and drop-outs.
- is there an orientation program regarding
secondary school courses for Indian parents.
Generally speaking, parents are a great
source of encouragement to their children
regarding school success.  Indian parents
are even more anxious for their children
to succeed in their academic pursuits.
However, encouragement efforts are limited
due to the lack of understanding of what
their children are facing in the secondary
schools.
Village Councils, Indian Education Committees, Indian Affairs
Guidance Counsellors, Home-School Co-ordinators, Secondary School
Counsellors should co-ordinate their efforts to gather data about potential
grade 8 students in early June.
3) Curriculum Enrichment, Innovation, Supplementation Work.
Since all Indian secondary students are in the
provincial schools, a totally separate curriculum
outline for Indian students is not feasible.
However, major adaptations of this problem area
are desirable for both Indian and non-Indian
students.
The present B.C. Curriculum has plenty of leeway for enrichment, innovation and supplementation
efforts. Many schools are currently involved in
developments of this nature.  Perhaps, these
schools should contact our Center, so that a
co-ordinated effort can be made in such pursuits.
Our Center has several such supplemental units
available {see our Indian Education Newsletter -
January and February, 1972 issues) .
4) Practical Utilization of Existing Counselling Services.
Ideally, at the critical transitional area (from
grade 7 to grade 8), a concerted effort should be
made to offer a counselling program (by grade 7
teachers, Home-School Co-ordinators, Indian Affairs
Guidance Counsellors, Indian Village Councils,
and Education Committees etc.), dealing with
rural urban life; an elaboration of secondary
school programs; operation of secondary schools;
teenage life; home study habits etc.
Such an emphasis at this level would lessen the present complexity of counselling Indian secondary students, and hopefully a more
meaningful type of counselling would develop. - 3 -
5) Practical Use of Resource Personnel.
In enriching or developing your present school
program, a very necessary ingredient, is the use
of local hunters, trappers, fisherman, loggers,
historians, artists, story tellers, dancers,
carvers, village council members, mothers,
teacher aides, subject area consultants, home-
school co-ordinators, BCNITA members etc.
Since there is very little written material
regarding the foregoing, such an approach
as suggested, is a readily available sourch
of supplementing your curriculum upgrading efforts.
6) More Use of Teacher Workshop - Inservice Programming.
Since all Indian secondary students are attending
provincial schools, it stands to reason that more
and more secondary schools will have Indians in
their classes. With this "inevitable" development,
we suggest that District Teacher Conferences make
an effort to include Indian Education as a topic
for informational discussion.  The B.C. Native
Indian Teachers Association and the Indian Education Resources Center are there to provide resource
materials and personnel - usually a month's notice
is all we need. At such workshops, all of the needs
included in this article can be pursued with a two-
way exchange of ideas approach.
7) Subject and Age Grade Retardation.
Indian students are reputed to be a year or more
behind in age-grade as well as in such subject
areas as in reading.
Does your school approach actual situations with analytic -
diagnostic - remedial programs?
Is there a preventative attempt to correct these weakness
areas in the formative years (pre-school - kindergarten) and in the
primary program?
Is the reading retardation problem analyzed as to what
developmental skill is lagging or weak i.e. (left to right eye co-ordination;
comprehension; phonetic problem; oral & silent reading; enrichment of vocabulary; word or component word omissions, substitutions, repetitious; sentence,
paragraph, chapter summaries; physical or mental impediments etc., etc.)
8) Tutoring Services.
Assuming that you are faced with the problems in
#7, and with poor homework habits (assignments
not turned in, poor daily homework preparation, - 4 -
(cont.).... 8) no oral participation in class etc.) in grade 8
and up, does you school offer extra tutoring
(out of school) services to Indian students -
on a one to one basis, on a team approach basis,
or on an incidental basis?
Home-School Co-ordinators, Indian Affairs Guidance Counsellors
and counsellors should team up to help provide or arrange this necessary
help.
9) Cultural Barriers.
Fallacies, misconceptions, misunderstandings are
ingredients to prejudices or discrimination.
A co-operative effort by Indian and non-Indian
people is needed to avoid this unhealthy relationship. PTA and Education Committees. Village
Councils, School Board, or integration Committee
Meetings, should encourage a two-way exchange of
ideas and feelings by Indian and non-Indian
participants.
Strengths and weaknesses of all students should be
considered in the day to day school operation.
Most Indian students have a rich cultural background, his socio-economic base, his contemporary
mode of life etc.  See #2, #3, #4, #5, #6 & #10.
10)  Teacher Background Information Regarding Indians.
See our Indian Education Resources Center lists of books, films,
educational pamphlets, resource personnel, curriculum enriched materials etc.
Updated lists will be appearing in the January and February 1972 issues of
our Indian Education Newsletter.
A 3 unit credit course at UBC (winter and summer sessions)
Education 479 - Indian Education is an excellent source, offering a beginning approach in this area.  It deals with historical as well as contemporary
aspects of the Indian, correlated to the education field.
University of Victoria offers a similar course in Anthropology
and Education - (Education 425).
This initial exploratory look at Indian Education is hopefully
the beginning of a series of articles on Indian Education to be undertaken
by members of the B.C. Native Indian Teachers Association.  By all means,
it is not an exhaustive treatment of the topic, but rather was intended to
germinate some seeds of thought you may have already had, or perhaps it
maybe an encouragement to some program you and you school are involved in.
We welcome news about your school programming, teacher helps
or hints, or your thoughts on my aspect of Indian Education.  There is a
real need for a co-ordination of efforts in curriculum enrichment or
supplemental work. We encourage all schools currently involved in such
developments to exchange ideas, facts or finished products with our Center.

TRAINING OPPORTUNITIES FOR ADULTS POST-SCHOOL EDUCATION
SERVICES AVAILABLE TO INDIAN PEOPLE
B. C. REGION: Federal Department of Indian Affairs & Northern Development,
Regional Office, #303 - 325 Granville St., Vancouver 2, B.C.
This is designed to be of assistance to you regarding the educational services available through the Department of Indian Affairs.
The purpose of the Department is to adminster the "Indian Act".
The educational services available to Indian people are found within the
"Indian Act", Section 113-122.
In 1966, the Vocational & Special Training Division of the
Department came into being.  Its prime responsibility is to provide a
wide range of educational services such as Adult Education Programs,
Vocational Training and Employment Assistance.
POST-SCHOOL OR VOCATIONAL TRAINING:
Post-School or Vocational Training is pre-employment training
which the student could find helpful in securing qualifications required
for employment. Nursing, Stenography, Teaching, Electrical Training are
some examples of vocational training. Studying at the University or College
for a degree is also vocational training in that it prepares for future
employment.
WHAT IS PRE-APPRENTICESHIP TRAINING:
Pre-apprenticeship training is preparation for employment
through apprenticeship. This program is sponsored by the Provincial
Government and is designed to help people who wish to see employment in
such trades as Bricklaying, Electronics, Sign Printing, Carpentry, etc.
The training teaches the individual basic skills and fundamental theory of the trade he has chosen. Upon graduation, the student is
qualified to enter apprenticeship of his trade.
Apprenticeship training is learning on the job through an
employer and studying in a Vocational School.  The employer provices
practical training in the skills of the trade. By working with skilled
men, the trainee can acquire skills and knowledge which apply to his trade.
SPECIAL TRAINING:
Upgrading is a major part of special programs. There are two
programs held in Vancouver which are part of special training.
One is the Adult Continuation Centre which offers upgrading
for people with little or no schooling.  This course is held at 525 West
Pender Street, Vancouver, B. C. Telephone: 688-1725. - 6 -
The other course, the Assessment Orientation & Upgrading Program is designed for people 18 years and over who have dropped out of
school but have a desire to return. This course assists the student in
dealing with City life. Orientation is done by visiting and touring public
facilities, inviting Indian guest speakers, etc. The student assesses his
social and academic programs and decides when he is ready for a regular
class or employment. The Class is held at King Edward Centre, 951 West
12th Avenue, Vancouver 9, B. C.
Also part of Special Programs are courses such as fire prevention, held on the reserve, cooking and sewing classes, crafts, and
other cultural activities which are held in the evening on reserves.
Camosun College in Victoria offers a program of Indian Studies
such as Upgrading, an Introductory Fine Art course and a Special Adult
Secondary Program for Native Indians, Grades XI and XII as well as other
courses leading to employment.
In addition Basic Training for Skill Development classes are
held in co-operation with Canada Manpower on reserves in B.C.
MANPOWER TRAINING:
Manpower has training programs for persons who are either unemployed or employed but want to improve their skills and get a better
wage.
In short, to qualify for Manpower training it is required
that:
1. You be at least 16 years old, a member of the labour force
for one year. This only qualifies you for tuition costs.
Indian Affairs may provide for your living allowance if
needed.
2. You have been a member of the labour force for three years
or have dependents. This qualifies you for tuition costs
and living allowances. The allowance will vary from $47
to $88 per week.
FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE FROM INDIAN AFFAIRS
Financial assistance is available for Indian people who
wish to continue their education in a vocational course at any of the
Provincial Vocational Schools in the Province. Assistance includes
the payment of tuition fees, the cost of books and supplies and a
living allowance for room and board, and spending money. Allowances
will vary from $47 to $88 per week, depending on the number of dependents.
These payments are made twice a month and applications are made through
Vocational Counsellors. A visit must be made to Canada manpower first
before Indian Affairs assistance is granted. You will be asked to pay
for some of your training costs if you can afford it. - 7 -
ACCOMMODATION ASSISTANCE:
The Boarding Home Program is designed to accommodate Indian
students who attend school away from their community.  If a student wishes
to board in a private home he/she may do so by contacting a Vocational
Counsellor, who will then make necessary arrangements.
VOCATIONAL COUNSELLORS:
The role of the Vocational Counsellor is:
1. To discuss with the student his/her goals and opportunities
available to achieve them.
2. To assist the student who may not have a specific course in
mind, but wished to improve his or her employment qualifications.
3. To serve as a contact person.  Information regarding training services available, locations of Vocational Schools and
matters of a personal nature can be discussed.  If the
Counsellor is unable to assist the student in certain
matters, he should be able to direct the student to someone
who can. He can make arrangements for aptitude and ability
testing for anyone who wishes to find out where his/her
interests and abilities lie.
GENERAL INFORMATION:
There are many questions which may arise that are not discussed in this pamphlet.  It is designed only to provide basic information.  The Vocational Counsellors should be available to answer any
questions which may arise and have not been mentioned in this booklet.

EMPLOYMENT & RELOCATION SERVICES AVAILABLE TO INDIAN PEOPLE
B. C. REGION: Federal Department of Indian Affairs & Northern Development,
Regional Office, #303 - 325 Granville St., Vancouver 2, B.C.
Employment and Relocation Services are available through Indian
Affairs. Eight counsellors are employed to find employment opportunities
for the Indian labour force, either through Canada Manpower referrals or
direct placement with an employer. On-the-job Training, In-Service Training and Relocation Programs are also part of Employment and Relocation
Services, and are available to the extent of the budget allocated.
ROLE OF THE COUNSELLORS
Generally the duties of the Employment and Relocation Counsellor
are:
1. To assist in locating employment opportunities for Indians
either living on or off the reserve.
2. To counsel applicants for On-the-job Training, In-Service
Training, or relocation programs. 9 -
3. To promote economic development on reserves so that it
will provide employment for Indian people.
4. Find job placement for disabled people where possible.
PROGRAMS
PLACEMENT
This service is designed to be of assistance to anyone who is
starting employment. The funds help pay for his transportation to work
area, his first month's rent, basic tools, clothing and other necessities
as required.
RELOCATION
Funds are available for Indian people who wish to move off the
reserve for permanent employment elsewhere. Because this move is of a
permanent nature and granted only once, it is a very serious step. Assistance of this kind is of a limited nature dependent on local budgets.
ON-THE-JOB  TRAINING
Training on-the-job is supervised employment. During this
training the individual may have to go to classes related to his trade.
This program is helpful for a person who does not meet the academic
requirements for entering a trade school program, but shows great interest and ability on the job. Before a contract is entered into, there
must be a moral committment for a job.
Some of the jobs one can learn on-the-job are:
1. Carpentry
2. Short Order Cook
3. Waitress
4. Teller
5. Dry Cleaning
6. Machine Operator
7. Printing Trades
8. Tire Repair, etc.
CANADA MANPOWER
Many of the programs available through Canada Manpower are
similar to those offered by the Employment and Relocation Program. Manpower offers training programs, job placement and mobility grants for
people who need assistance in moving to a centre of employment. Indian
Affairs offers assistance in training when Canada Manpower criteria are
not met by Indian applicants for training. - 10 -
Canada Manpower's training program sponsors people who want to
learn a trade.  Tuition costs and living allowances are available if you
qualify. To be eligible for tuition costs you must be at least 16 years
old and have been out of school for one year.  Full assistance, tuition
and living expenses are given if you have been a member of the labour force
for at least three years. This can mean that you were either employed or
unemployed.  Additional assistance is given if you have dependents.
GENERAL INFORMATION
In choosing a trade, a person must consider certain facts;-
his physical ability, his ability to master skills and technical knowledge and most important a sincere interest in the trade of his choice.
This pamphlet is designed to provide you with some basic
information about employment and relocation services.  Any question
which may arise and you may want to discuss should be directed to an
Employment and Relocation Counsellor in your District or to the Regional
Relocation Counsellor:
