Indigenous Education

The Indigenous Education Centre serves all schools in District No. 60, developing and promoting Indigenous programs that increase knowledge and understanding in the community. Working with teachers, support workers, administrators, and the broader community, its representatives assist with providing cultural awareness sessions, workshops, counselling, restorative justice facilitation and more.

Traditional Territory

We work, learn, and live on the traditional territory of the Dane-zaa. Our district is also in Treaty 8 territory, the only numbered treaty in British Columbia.

Dane-zaa Word of the Day

Saahgii - River

Audio recordings of more words and phrases are available on the First Voices website.

Local Education Agreements

School District No. 60 has signed Local Education Agreements (LEA) with all three of our First Nations communities; Blueberry River First Nations, Doig River First Nation and Halfway River First Nation. Local Education Agreements are important tools for building relationships between First Nation communities and Boards of Education, in order to support improved First Nation student outcomes (FNESC, 2019).
