Regional Indigenous Perspectives on Languages and Cultures

INDG 100 Regional Perspectives on Language and Cultures. 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 Metis 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.
