Nine delegates from Saskatchewan attended the First National Aboriginal Literacy Gathering in May 2000, held in Morley, Alberta. There was a great deal of enthusiasm generated during the course of the Gathering and plans for a follow-up provincial Aboriginal literacy project began.
Since then, a Provincial Aboriginal Literacy Steering Committee was convened to carry the discussion and planning forward. On May 14, 2002, The Provincial Aboriginal Literacy Gathering was held, an event that provided the opportunity for Elders, learners, literacy practitioners, community members, and representatives from various governments to work together in a participatory strategic plan process to develop future directions for Aboriginal literacy in the province.
