"This curriculum, the first of its kind, is eagerly sought and used by Fraser Valley school districts and schools as a generalist teacher's classroom resource. It includes an ambitious number of student learning objectives for 10 different subjects. Although the program's primary purpose is to inform other Canadians about a little known Aboriginal culture, it has a distinctly multicultural flavour, and is aimed at helping both teachers and students become informed. Because there is so little educational material about the Mťis culture available for teachers, the PEMA Program is also being used in intermediate classrooms, with a great deal of teacher feedback about how easy it is for them to use and adapt the program to their needs. The most important feature about all the material covered, is that the information covered in the program is Mťis authored and recommended."--Canadian Education Association (
