John Murdoch principal of the Indian Affairs school at Ruper House, James Bay, and his wife Gerti have initiated a curriculm development project using local people and resources. The materials are drawn from Cree folklore, and mainly in Cree and make use of old photographs, artifacts and books that are written and printed in the community. The school year is organized so that pupils have time to go hunting and fishing with their families. This innovative approach makes local control of education a reality in native communities.
