Red Crow, ULethbridge launch Niitsitapi Teacher Education Program

August 23, 2017

Red Crow Community College and the University of Lethbridge’s Faculty of Education have partnered to launch the Niitsitapi Teacher Education Program, to begin in Fall 2018. “We look forward to working with the U of L on the Niitsitapi Teacher Education Program,” said Red Crow President Roy Weasel Fat. “The program will prepare students to teach from a Blackfoot perspective and ultimately, to pass along language and culture to future generations.” ULethbridge explains that the program is for First Nations, Métis and Inuit students or interested non-Indigenous students who want to become qualified teachers and work with Blackfoot children and youth. Students are able to take part in the program as a five-year combined degree or a two-year post-degree program. ULethbridge
