In 2014, ICH Co-Chair Derek Eidse (who is also a high school teacher), created a unit of study on the impact of hydroelectric development in Northern Manitoba. This unit is part of a larger section on Colonization that can be taught in a Gr. 9 Social Studies, Gr. 12 Global Issues, or any Indigenous Studies course. It’s a unit plan of significant length, so feel free to pick and choose/adapt it for your particular context.
