Abstract: This thesis focus on indigenous claims regarding history teaching in Quebec. The goal of this study is to understand how to incorporate indigenous views of the past in Quebec’s history curriculum and into teaching practices. To do so, various documents were used: briefs, documents for comment, reports and education programs. A special attention was paid to the briefs produced by indigenous communities during the major educational reforms. In those briefs, indigenous communities put forward their visions of the past and discuss how they should be included in history taught to students. More specifically, we refer to the Parent report (1964), but also to the two last reports that dealt with history teaching, the Lacoursière report (1996) and the Beauchemin-Fahmy-Eid report (2014)Various theories developped by educational researchers (for example the historical thinking of Peter Seixas or Barton’s agentivity) will help us understand how history can be taught in a way that promotes in students a social and historical consciousness that recognizesthe contributions of First Nations in the past and present society.In fact, history teaching often uses cultural and historiographical frameworks from previous generations. At the secondary level, a considerable amount of learning situations present indigenous people as passive characters of Quebec and Canada historical narrative.(Bories-Sawala, Thibault, 2020).By analysing briefs published by indigenous associations, our study will allow us to characterize how First Nations envision their past and how they think it should be taught in today’s schools.
