September:

Oki, tansi, da ni t'a da!

My sincere gratitude to all the students, families and staff who made our sage picking field trip such a meaningful, and fun 

opportunity. "Hai hai" to Grade 2 students showed up with ribbon skirts, ribbon shirts, learning of protocols from their elders and classroom teachers. "Ehhh" to our community members who were able to join and share the teachings of their family and elders! Students showed their leadership in our school by picking sage for all grades to share 

through the year, and were able to share how the land connects them to the stories of who they are. 


"I been here before! Mom told me.

She told me I said my first words, here. 

We were walking, and I was with her, 

and I said "Mommy" and she was so proud of me!"

Oki, tansi, da ni t'a da!

My name is Ruby Kane, and I am looking forward to my role as Indigenous Education Learning Leader this year at Niitsitapi Learning Centre.  

I am originally from Salmon Arm, BC. My father’s family is Shuswap and Salish First Nation from the Pavillion Indian Band in Lillooet, and my mother’s family is English and Irish from Vancouver Island. 

I have been teaching in Calgary for 5 years, first at Piitoayis Family School, then Valley View School in the Medicine Wheel Kindergarten program. I am humbled for the opportunity to continue building relationships with the families and elders in Niitsitapi Learning Centre community, and greatly look forward meeting the new families and students joining us!

My role this year will allow me to support student-learning in small groups, collaborate with teachers to continue creating culturally responsive learning, and work with our administration and leadership team to continue weaving Indigenous perspectives into the board. 

Feel free to contact me via phone or email if you have any questions! [ (403) 817-3404 ; rdkane@cbe.ab.ca ]
