January 6, 2022
Kenjgewin Teg Educational Institute and Queen’s University have announced that they will be expanding their partnership. Through the expanded partnership, the institutions will create a pilot program that will enable Queen’s students to learn about Indigenous peoples and culture from an Indigenous institute. The one-term pilot will enable students to take courses remotely through Queen’s Faculty of Arts and Science. Courses will focus on a variety of areas, such as climate change and sustainability, Indigenous theatre and performance, and language. “The new courses will provide students with the opportunity to enhance their awareness of Indigenous perspectives on a diverse range of subjects,” said KTEI President Stephanie Roy. “Building awareness of the perspectives and knowledge of Indigenous peoples is a key part of the reconciliation process.” The Manitoulin Expositor (ON)
