Where the Arts Come Alive

First Nations, Metis and Inuit Education

"We acknowledge that we are on Treaty 8 Territory, a traditional meeting grounds, gathering place, and travelling route to the Cree, Dene, and Dane-zaa (Beaver) and Metis.  We acknowledge all the many First Nations, Metis and Inuit whose footsteps have marked these lands for centuries."

Follow our district wide indigenous education account on TWITTER@IndigenousFMPSD to stay informed about opportunities, family nights and events for our FNMI students.

Our trained teachers integrate the First Nations, Métis, and Inuit (FNMI) learning, experiences and achievements of our First Nations, Métis, and Inuit students. We do this by helping schools develop a holistic understanding of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit cultures, worldviews, histories, and current realities.  We believe this approach fosters relationships that welcome, nurture, and honour individual student’s stories and cultures and supports the weaving of culture and curriculum to enhance the learning for all students. We collaborate across the district, First Nations communities, Métis and Inuit organizations, and stakeholders to develop strategies, resources, programs and initiatives that support personal growth, high school completion, and career pathways to post-secondary studies or the world of work.
