PAGC, USask announce education, reconciliation MOU

May 1, 2019

The Prince Albert Grand Council and the University of Saskatchewan have signed a memorandum of understanding to work together on reconciliation and making the university more welcoming to Indigenous students. “Moving forward this is a very important area, of course education is the key to the era that we’re in, and that’s reconciliation,” said PAGC Grand Chief Brian Hardlotte. PA Now explains that the partnership has been in development since the original announcement of USask’s plan to establish a new campus in Prince Albert. USask President Peter Stoicheff stated that although USask has made progress on Indigenization, there is still more to do. “The only way we can do it is by having Indigenous communities, Indigenous leaders, Indigenous knowledge keepers, language keepers and Indigenous students and faculty members and staff members helping the institution and us to understand how it can be the best place it can possibly be,” said Stoicheff. PA Now (SK)
