Share Your Proven Strategies with Others

Successful Practices: Showcasing Strategies that Work

Successful Practices include documented research, frameworks, models, and educational strategies that have worked to enhance kindergarten to grade 12 student success. Indspire evaluates and shares these proven practices here, for the benefit of Indigenous education stakeholders nationwide.


Practices are evaluated using seven principles created by consultation with national Indigenous scholars. The principles honour Indigenous ways of knowing and values. Educators, parents, school boards, and others will find the Successful Practices a valuable resource for sharing proven educational strategies to help Indigenous students succeed.

Specific criteria must be met before Indspire will evaluate a practice.

National Film Board of Canada: An Educator’s Guide to Trick or Treaty? and Hi-Ho Mistahey!
This educator’s guide is designed to accompany the National Film Board of Canada documentaries Trick or Treaty? and Hi-Ho Mistahey!, directed by acclaimed Indigenous filmmaker Alanis Obomsawin. It provides a framework and reference for introducing the films and examining how they relate to Indigenous issues in Canada by tracing the Canadian treaty process, with a focus on Treaty No. 9, known as the James Bay Treaty (1905). In addition, students have the opportunity to gain an understanding of why inequities exist in the education system for Indigenous peoples in Canada today.
