Kiuna Institute offers First Nations-focused curriculum

September 11, 2013

Quebec’s Kiuna Institute is helping to shape the next generation of Indigenous leaders through culturally-inclusive learning and a focus on student success. The majority of courses offered at Kiuna are within the First Nations Social Science diploma program that was developed specifically for Kiuna. Established in 2011 by the First Nations Education Council, Kiuna continues to grow; with close to 70 students this year, Kiuna has added a staff psychologist, an academic and social worker, and a liaison for French and English students to ensure the students have the necessary supports. Classes are offered in English and French, and when possible, in the students’ Indigenous language. Le Nouvelliste (in French) | APTN News
