Led by Indigenous Knowledge Keeper / Elder
The overall goal of the experience is to foster and support engaged families and communities and in particular increase the knowledge of all Grade 5 students on the richness of Indigenous culture and heritage in Oakville as well as provide the opportunity to hear directly from an indigenous knowledge keeper, which aligns with Ontario’s First Nation, Métis and Inuit Policy Framework and Implementation Plan.
