In schools throughout BC, Indigenous culture and perspective are being woven into mainstream subjects. In addition, courses with a primary focus on an Indigenous curriculum are also part of the curriculum. Jo Chrona, the curriculum co-ordinator for the First Nations Education Steering Committee (FNESC), says the FNESC has recommended that one of these Indigenous-themed courses be a requirement for graduation.
