Join us for the Regional Indigenous Perspectives on Languages and Cultures on June 4th - 8th. This face-to-face course takes place 9am - 4pm Monday to Thurday and 9am - 1pm on Friday.
Staff, students and community members are encouraged to take this introductory course so that they may experience the voices, cultures, histories, values, beliefs, oral traditions, literature, and art of Lakes-Sinixt, Okanagan-Syilx, Ktunaxa and Métis peoples.
In light of the national Truth and Reconciliation Commission and the College’s signature on the Canadian Institutes and Colleges Indigenous Education Protocol, it is important that residents, employees and students consider indigenous worldviews in their studies, work, and lives. Introductions to important historical, cultural, social and political realities that have and continue to impact the lives of Indigenous peoples should help course participants better navigate intercultural relations and inclusivity at school, work and home.
This blended course will include learning activities and assessments, delivered on the course Moodle site and face to face in cooperation with the Lakes-Sinixt, Okanagan-Syilx, Ktunaxa and Métis Nations.
