Kamsack Comprehensive Institute (KCI) now has an Indigenous Student Centre (ISC) to provide Indigenous students with a “safe, comfortable space to practice traditions, customs and ceremonies.”
On October 8 members of the community, representatives of the school and Good Spirit School Division (GSSD), Yorkton Tribal Council (YTC), Chiefs, council members and Elders of Cote, Keeseekoose and The Key First Nations (FNs) joined with KCI students to hold a grand opening event for the ISC.
After an opening prayer and pipe ceremony, Jeremy Allard (aboriginal community worker for KCI and Victoria School), provided introductions and welcomed Ted Quewezance as the emcee for the program held in the KCI gymnasium.
