The Medicine Wheel Approach to ACE
[from the Annual General Meeting Minutes of the Aboriginal Teachers’ Circle, May 14, 2001]
The Four Distinct Directions to allocate our efforts:
This area is in the Northern door and focuses on how we support our members and others involved in the area of Aboriginal education. This includes efforts in the areas of nurturing, informing and advocacy.
This area is in the Eastern door and includes how we connect or communicate with both our members and others who are interested in the work we do. The tools we have identified include regular sharing as our meetings, distribution of our minutes, notices and newsletters, establishment of a brochure and web page and communications as required through our phone tree.
This area is in the Southern door and it emphasizes the processes used to share knowledge and expand our understandings with respect to Aboriginal education. These processes include seminars for learning, planning and facilitating conferences, support in developing or sharing information related to inclusive curriculum and developing sessions with an emphasis on wellness.
This area is in the Western door and it recognizes the need for all people to come together to make a difference in the area of Aboriginal education. The emphasis here is on connecting with educators, community, organizations and other agencies. It also recognizes the need to create opportunities for our ‘voices’ to be heard through a more formal influence process.
In keeping with the Medicine Wheel, all of these areas are related to each other and are interconnected. It is anticipated that we will continue to build our vision through our ongoing efforts as individuals and as an organization.
Save the Date! This year's Conference will be the best ever!
We have moved our dates to Friday and Saturday to make it easier for educators to attend and network.

The Theme of the Conference, "MAMAWABIDAAN: Let's All Sit Together", will focus on what the impacts of the reconciliation process and what educators can do to help the students, families and communities.
Let's all sit together to learn what can we don't know and to walk with what we do know and can learn as we move toward the truth.
We are looking for presenters who can help us to walk the truth and help our students, families and communities.
Presenter Packages are available until October 31, 2017.
