Share this fact to educate others, then join the discussion on Facebook or on Twitter (@FreeTheChildrenand @MAboriginalEdu) using #westandtogether. At the end of the campaign, create your own Daily Fact and share it with Free The Children and MAEI here.
Remember, there are also issues backgrounders, lesson plans and other great resources on the We Stand Together Resources webpage!

This vignette was filmed with the staff and students of Nunavut Sivuniksavut, in Ottawa, Ontario. Nunavut Sivuniksavut (NS) is an Inuit college that helps Inuit students prepare for the opportunities and growth in Nunavut

1. Why is this program important? What are the benefits of having such a specialized program?
2. is NS similar to your school? How is it different?
3. Why do you think NS is in Ottawa and not in Nunavut?
4. One of the students says, “There’s a lot of confidence going on around here!” How does education play a role in helping students develop confidence and pride?
5. Do you think that this type of training program can be used as a model for different Aboriginal communities? What about for public education in general?
