Lesson activities of " Indigenous Workers in the Early History of British Columbia” provide a comprehensive investigation into what is recalled of the role of Indigenous Peoples in the early economy of British Columbia and concludes with activities to re-examine those perceptions and to reassess how historical events are chronicled in the narrative of our past. This is a unit created by the Labour History Project, a group of retired and current British Columbia teachers collaborating to develop a series of lesson plans, activities, and workshops focused on labour studies and labour history.
