Aboriginal Education Newsletter Spring 2019

The Aboriginal Education Department is pleased to provide you with the first Aboriginal Education Department newsletter.


Welcome to the first edition of our Aboriginal Education Newsletter.

We hope that this newsletter will grow into a resource for NIC staff, students and communities to share information about Aboriginal-specific  events and initiatives. 

Oftentimes, NIC departments are working to indigenize course content, holding events or talks with Aboriginal writers and artists, or running programs that link to communities and Elders.

The intent of this newsletter is to collect and share stories and information about what’s happening at NIC, including indigenization, Aboriginal student success stories and events happening in the communities.

Please share with us events you know about or are helping to organize, stories of the hard work our students, faculty and staff are doing. 

Whether it is a large event, such as Tribal Journeys, or smaller events such as drum making workshops at our Campbell River campus, we encourage you to share with us events and stories of the hard work being done by our students, faculty and staff as we work together toward indigenization at NIC.

Please send information on stories and events to: kelly.shopland@nic.bc.ca
