Indigenous Languages

Indigenous Elders and Knowledge Keepers

We are very lucky to provide opportunities for students and staff to learn and practice Indigenous languages.  School population, where our families are from and the traditional languages commonly spoken determine language selection. All students are welcomed to honour their family values and traditions, by speaking the language that supports their Indigenous Identity. 

Fluent speaking Elders and Knowledge Keepers have supported our learning in language and traditional ways of knowing and being. Throughout the years, Blackfoot, Cree, Métis and Tsuu T'ina Elders have supported our learning.
