Note:  The term “Native” was used during initial translations of the French site, and also to match the terms that are still-used in the Quebec Elementary program. When possible we are transitioning to using other terms, like Indigenous, or simply speaking of the tribe/nation/band/peoples in question. We may also continue to use older terms simply to match the original materials we are still providing.
