The Aboriginal Education Outreach Program (AEOP) is an interactive project that has been set up to promote and foster a greater understanding of Native People in North America and their distinct cultures. Through the AEOP students are exposed to the teachings and traditions of Indigenous Nations: First Nations, Inuit, and Métis people. The Program ensures that students get relevant information and a thorough understanding of Native culture and an up close, in person lesson that brings Native people out of the history books and into a contemporary context, moving away from common stereotypes and misconceptions.
