A Learning community dedicated to educating all students for personal excellence

Indigenous Education

"We acknowledge that we are on Treaty 8 Territory, a traditional meeting grounds, gathering place, and travelling route to the Cree, Dene, and Dane-zaa (Beaver) and Metis.  We acknowledge all the many First Nations, Metis and Inuit whose footsteps have marked these lands for centuries."
