- Journey into new ways of being church and,
- Understand and engage with the struggle for dignity and economic justice for our neighbours and God’s Creation

The guide for Grades 1-8, written by teacher Kelly Crawford from M’Chigeeng First Nation, makes the connections to the Ontario curriculum in the areas of Math, Language, Social Studies and the Arts – based on the book “We are all Treaty People.”
