The University of Victoria’s Centre for Early Childhood Research and Policy collaborated with the Island Métis Family and Community Services Society to develop an educational resource with culturally relevant physical activities for young Métis children. The resource includes a booklet and activity materials that incorporate physical movement, literacy, and art while building cultural awareness. The resource focuses on the Métis Red River Cart journey, emphasizing qualities such as endurance, resilience, creativity, resourcefulness, protection, and ingenuity. The activities can be used by educators and caregivers for children ages 3–8. UVic News
