This year, we wanted to use the month of September to promote knowledge and understanding of Indigenous history and culture.
While working closely with our Indigenous Support Worker, Rod Willier, we started 'Things We Can Do Beyond Wearing Orange.' To help inspire students, staff, and families to learn more about Indigenous people and their importance to our local surroundings.
Things We Can Do Beyond Wearing Orange
The land is recognized as the traditional territory of Treaty 7 to the north, west and south and Treaty 4 to the east.—the traditional and ancestral territory of the Blackfoot Confederacy: Kainai, Piikani and Siksika as well as the Tsuu T’ina Nation and Stoney Nakoda First Nation. We acknowledge that this territory is home to the Métis Nation of Alberta, Region 3 within the historical Northwest Métis Homeland. We acknowledge the many First Nations, Métis and Inuit who have lived in and cared for these lands for generations. We are grateful for the traditional Knowledge Keepers and Elders who are still with us today and those who have gone before us. We make this acknowledgment as an act of reconciliation and gratitude to those whose territory we reside on or are visiting
