Although this news story was released in June, it is certainly something to be grateful for this Thanksgiving weekend. Here’s wishing all of the students and staff involved a wonderful year.
Congratulations to instructors Ida Bear (Cree) and Annie Boulanger (Ojibwe), and to the administrators who have made it happen: Indigenous Academic Lead Dr. Lorena Fontaine, and Dr. Shelley Tulloch, Chair of the Department of Anthropology. And bravo to Cree Literacy Network board member, Ken Paupanekis, another well known contributor.
