Indigenous Education

Land Acknowledgement

The High Prairie School Division respectfully acknowledges that we are located on the ancestral and traditional territory of the Indigenous peoples in this area.

This land has, and will continue to be, the home to the Cree, Dene and other First Nations and the Métis within the boundaries of Treaty 8.

We wish to acknowledge the traditional Knowledge Holders and Elders who are still with us today and those who have gone before us.

Mission Statement
"Advancing reconciliation by honouring culture, identity, and belonging through wholistic education."

All students will have a deep understanding of our Canadian history, including Indigenous cultures, perspectives, treaties and land agreements, the legacy of residential schools, and the contributions of Indigenous culture in shaping our Canadian identity.

This model will support all staff in meeting the TQS#5 through monthly professional development sessions designed to build the capacity of our teachers to accurately and confidently deliver Indigenous materials in their classrooms to move generations forward in creating a more inclusive Canada.

This model will allow Indigenous learners to see themselves reflected in the curriculum. Classroom content across subject areas from kindergarten to grade twelve will be respectful, authentic, and genuine, often including consultations with Elders and Knowledge Keepers.
