Oki, welcome to my first post!  My name is Tracy Healy, I am the Indigenous Literacy Teacher on the Indigenous Education Team for the Burnaby School District.  I would like to begin by acknowledging we are on the shared, ancestral and unceded traditional territories of the hən̓q̓əmin̓əm̓ and Sḵwxwú7mesh speaking people.  I am a member of the Kainai, Blood Tribe.  My Nation is part of the Blackfoot Confederacy in Southern Alberta.  I now reside on the Musqueam Reserve with my family.  I have been with the Indigenous Education Team since 1998 and have witnessed much progress to include Indigenous perspective into all subject areas of the K-12 curriculum.

During these challenging times for our families and students, the Burnaby School District has developed a Continuing Learning Website which contains resources and self-directed learning activities across a wide variety of subject areas.  I am including a link https://burnabyschools.ca/indigenouseducation/events/ to Indigenous Education, where you will find Indigenous lessons our team has created with parents in mind.   I will be using this Blog to send notifications to Indigenous families and students to share links and additional updates as we move forward.   Take care of you and your families.
