Water. The Sacred Relationship.

The Sacred Relationship in the classroom and the community

The lesson plans were prepared specifically for Grades 5 and 6 Alberta Social Studies and Science curriculum. However, we encourage teachers from across Canada to adapt the lesson plans for any grade level (between 7–12) in any Province/Territory. As well, community program facilitators can use and adapt the lesson plan to suit their own purposes. The Sacred Relationship package includes the printed curriculum and documentary on a USB.

If you have any questions, please contact us.


The Sacred Relationship brings Indigenous worldview into your classroom and community. Download or order easy-to-teach lesson plans based on a series of fifteen educational videos. The videos feature perspectives on water from Indigenous Elders, leaders, and Western Scientists from across Alberta.
