EAGLE is an acronym standing for Education and Appreciation Garnered through Listening and Exploring. This cultural awareness program features a series of interpretive tours of the Royal BC Museum’s First Peoples gallery from a First Nations perspective.
The program is presented by Leslie McGarry from the Kwakwa̱ka̱’wakw – Kwagiulth First Nation. It focuses on the pre- and post-contact histories represented in the gallery and highlights the cultural diversity of First Peoples in BC.
The program has been developed to address the new prescribed learning outcomes of the BC school curriculum for kindergarten to grade twelve students. The EAGLE program also supports the directives associated with the enhancement agreements, signed by the Greater Victoria School District and the Ministry of Education.
