Welcome to the Aboriginal Education Directorate website. The Aboriginal Education Directorate provides leadership and co-ordination for departmental initiatives in Aboriginal education and training. The Aboriginal Education Directorate operates from within Manitoba Education, Manitoba Advanced Education and Literacy, and Manitoba Aboriginal and Northern Affairs. The primary role of the Aboriginal Education Directorate is in research, policy development and strategic initiatives. This is accomplished in the spirit of cooperation and consultation with many groups and individuals, such as school administrators, educators, students, parents, Aboriginal and community organizations and other government departments. The Aboriginal Education Directorate works in partnership with First Nations communities and organization in Manitoba. The Directorate’s work is supported by the guidance of two advisory councils from the Aboriginal community.
The Directorate has developed a graphic that represents an authentic Aboriginal perspective. Please read the graphic information for the story of its history and creation.
