The National Aboriginal Design Committee (NADC) began under the auspices of Beverly Anne Sabourin and Associates (BASA). In Phase I of this project, BASA compiled an inventory of basic and intermediate adult literacy programs sponsored and/or initiated by Aboriginal Peoples, and involving Aboriginal learners as clients. Phases II and III developed evaluation mechanisms of Aboriginal literacy programs.
An overarching theme is the need for, and the recognition of, distinct Aboriginal approaches to literacy/education.
This report outlines the development of national aboriginal literacy goals and strategies and covers the period May 2002 to July 2003.
