Across Turtle Island, First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples have resisted against colonial structures to preserve their languages, identities and culture. Today we celebrate their stories, their joys, accomplishments and successes.
This day is also an opportunity for all educators to reflect on how we can support one another in our reconciliation practice and learning/unlearning journey.
The AECEO is committed to addressing colonial frameworks that have historically failed, and continue to fail, Indigenous children and their families. The AECEO is dedicated to ensuring First Nation, Métis and Inuit educators have opportunity and support to take the lead in responding to all matters related to their specific communities.
