Project of Heart: Illuminating the hidden history of Indian Residential Schools in BC

BC Teachers Federation
“Imagine that you are five years old. A stranger comes to your home village and seizes you from your mother’s arms. Imagine he takes you hundreds of miles away to a place where white people in black robes cut off your hair and take away your clothes, the ones your mother made especially for you.” Project of Heart was developed by the BCTF to honour residential school survivors and their families, and to help educate Canadians about the atrocious history and ongoing legacy of residential schools. The kit is a resource for teachers that can be geared to different age groups, mainly elementary and intermediate students, with the ultimate goal of making public education itself a vehicle for healing and reconciliation. The online edition has extensive links to a rich variety of additional resources and is a broader and deeper learning experience. Visit to access many excellent resources including videos, articles, speeches, classroom activities, and more. The printed kit contains: • Project of Heart book • Wooden tiles • 3 pkgs. Bookmarks • Strips of butterfly decals • Fan • Project of Heart links and recommended resources • Blackline masters • Teacher magazine
