About This Resource

Lesson activities to accompany the vignette "Bows and Arrows” from the acclaimed Knowledge Network series; Working People: A History of Labour in British Columbia produced by Landrock Entertainment. The vignette explores the role of Aboriginal workers in the early years of the Port of Vancouver and the struggle for racial equality in the labour movement. The life of Bill Nahanee and the early years of the IWW (Industrial Workers of the World) are also featured in this lesson. This is a unit created by the Labour History Project, a group of retired and current British Columbia teachers collaborating to develop a series of lesson plans, activities, and workshops focused on labour studies and labour history.
