Learning and work in Indigenous education continues throughout Indigenous History Month

June 3, 2022

June is National Indigenous History Month, a month to continue learning and work in Indigenous Education and Reconciliation, and to learn about and celebrate the histories, cultures and futures of Indigenous Peoples.

This year, all schools were provided with vetted digital resources to support this month for each division. Also, students in grades 4-8 and grades 9-12+ have an opportunity to attend a livestream as part of Indigenous History Month. The livestream will be with Riley Yesno (she/her), who is a queer Anishinaabe writer, researcher, and public speaker from Eabametoong First Nation. She has experience working at all levels of change-making, has travelled the world public speaking. Her love and gratitude for her communities, passion for radical ideas, and the call she feels to challenge systems, is what inspires her work.

Members of the public are invited to attend a special event on Tuesday June 14 at 7pm, being held at The Bookshelf Cinema in Guelph.
