Indigenous Education for Newcomers a Great Success

The official launch celebration of the Indigenous Education for Newcomers Initiative was a great success. We would like to express our heartfelt thanks to our partners, the Government of Canada, Government of Alberta, Calgary Foundation, ATB, The Calgary Bridge Foundation for Youth, Calgary Immigrant Educational Society, Calgary Police Service, University of Calgary, Making Treaty 7, City of Calgary, Calgary Public Library and Humainologie.

Also a special thanks to Herman Yellow Old Woman, Andy Curtis, Elder Clarence Wolfleg, Elder Clarence Wolfleg, and Gabrielle Lindstrom, our Advisory Committee, along with all the volunteers, resource tables, and last but not least - to the hundreds in attendance who took time out of their day to join us. This event was for you.  Click below to catch some of CBCs coverage of the big event and stay tuned for more.
