We acknowledge that we are on Treaty 6 territory, a traditional meeting grounds, gathering place, and travelling route to the Cree, Saulteaux, Blackfoot, Métis, Dene and Nakota Sioux. We acknowledge all the many First Nations, Métis, and Inuit whose footsteps have marked these lands for centuries. We honour not only those who have walked before us, but those who will walk in years to come.
Jeremy Albert will be working with our school this year. Jeremy, of Cree/French/Irish ancestry, is a proud member of the Sweetgrass First Nation located in Treaty 6 Territory. He currently works as an Advisor with the First Nations, Métis and Inuit Education team where he supports staff and students. Jeremy holds a Bachelor of Education degree from the University of Alberta and has spent time teaching and working with Indigenous and non-Indigenous people from across Alberta. Jeremy is a Cree language learner and this has played a large role in his own process of reconciliation and decolonization.
