Indigenous Cultural Competency Training
Indigenous Cultural Competency Training for Educators (all grades)
10am – 12pm
In collaboration with The Gord Downie & Chanie Wenjack Fund (DWF), BPAC offers an Indigenous Cultural Competency Training session for Educators of all grades. Through an informative “Reconciliation in the Classroom” presentation facilitated by Lisa Prinn & Sabrina Angeconeb, and a live music performance and speaking engagement with Tom Wilson, Educators learn more about the Legacy Schools program and how to incorporate the unique interests, rights, and perspectives of Indigenous peoples into everyday learning.
The Gord Downie & Chanie Wenjack Fund (DWF) Legacy Schools program is a free initiative to engage, empower, and connect educators to further reconciliation. All educators are encouraged to sign up to receive their first Legacy Schools toolkit, which contains copies of the Secret Path graphic novel, educational resources for use at home or in the classroom, a ReconciliACTION Guidebook, and other materials to ensure Indigenous perspectives are represented and celebrated in all places of learning and among all age groups. Our Legacy Schools resources are now being used in libraries, daycare centres, camps, clubs, and after-school programs.
Learn more and register to receive your toolkit in advance of the event, here.
