First Nations school teaches language, culture in Lethbridge

October 9, 2013

The Opokaa’sin Child Development Centre in Lethbridge, AB has opened doors at a new location to accommodate the 60 children attending pre-K and kindergarten. Opokaa’sin means “all the children” in Blackfoot, and it is the first school in Lethbridge specifically for First Nations children. Children from surrounding reserves and from within Lethbridge attend the school, which works with the Kainai school board to implement the kindergarten program. School officials say they hope one day to expand to offer more grades. Global News
