Supporting Indigenous Resources for Inclusive Learning in Elementary and High School Classrooms

Goodbye Buffalo Bay, written by award-winning Cree author Larry Loyie, is the true story and sequel to, As Long as the Rivers Flow. It follows the character Lawrence, depicting his time at residential school and life afterwards.

This novel study contains a 23 page student response booklet (and detailed answer key) that goes beyond basic comprehension. Using higher-level thinking, developing skills to analyze and support critical thinking, students learn foundation strategies that will follow them to high school and beyond.

This resource also includes two 'Big Questions' focusing on Child Rights violations committed by the residential schools and the complexities of multigenerational trauma caused by residential schools.

This novel study is suitable for individual independent learners, small groups and as a whole class study.
