Education and Public Programming

Working together with the Northwest Territories school system, the Northern Heritage Centre caters to NWT classrooms through a rich offering of school-based services in English and French. Visiting students and teachers can choose from a variety of educational programs that may take them paddling with the voyageurs, or help them slip into the skin of a beaver, the mouth of a whale or even back to the time of the legendary Dene hero Yamoria. Artifacts, edukits and travelling exhibits can be shipped to any community in the Northwest Territories. Online resources available to teachers and students include exhibits, databases, teaching manuals and curricula links.

Other outreach and public services include tours of the Heritage Centre, hosting public presentations and coordinating special events.
