Through her organization Peaceful Schools International, Hetty Van Gurp, the Canadian educator from Nova Scotia, works with teachers and students of countries that have been affected by war to teach them the language of peace. Hetty's own experience with the effects of bullying in schools, which resulted in the loss of her son, sparked her to undertake peace education in schools. This resource specifically follows Hetty's work at Vasa Pelagic School in Belgrade, Serbia. Through a 6 month period, Hetty pursued a culture of peace in the school. This process also included a visit of 13 of the teachers from Serbia to Canada to participate in workshops which would expand their understanding of the role of violence in schools and ways of counteracting it. Peer mediation among students is one of the approaches which is explored. The Vasa Pelagic School is positively influenced by Hetty's teachings, and ultimately served as an influence for the introduction of this methodology of peace into all Serbian school

Kiviuq( Visual )

2 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in Inuktitut and English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Can you imagine western culture without Homer's Odysseus? In Canada, in the minds of Inuit elders, lives a shaman/hero of equal power suppressed for a century. "You know what this is, don't you?" asks elder Samson Quinangnaq (1924 2006), "It's the secret Bible of the Inuit. Kiviuq was a prophet, and these stories are his parables." Inuit were forbidden by missionaries to speak of their ancient hero - but many elders believe he is still alive today. In this genre-defying performing arts film by the award- winning team of director John Houston and producer Peter d'Entremont, joined by emerging producer Kirt Ejesiak, the last elders raised on stories of Kiviuq's odyssey collaborate with youth to reveal perhaps to resurrect their secret Bible."--Container
