SPU launches summer school in partnership with Indigenous women leaders

August 1, 2018

A Memorandum of Understanding between Saint Paul University and Quebec Native Women Inc will bring a dozen Indigenous women leaders to the QNW-SPU Summer School, an intensive course on Indigenous women’s governance in Quebec. “It’s incredibly important that our Indigenous women have access to the necessary tools and resources to empower them to become leaders and agents of change in their community,” said QNW President Viviane Michel. According to a SPU release, the three-credit course will emphasize knowledge acquisition, traditional and modern practices of governance, empowerment, and strategies of resistance. STU adds that the course will incorporate land-based practices and teaching methods. SPU
