SCANTERBURY, Man. – About 1,700 students from 10 First Nations are part of the new Manitoba First Nations School System.

It was officially opened Wednesday on the Brokenhead First Nation.

The goal is to offer a curriculum that recognizes and incorporates the identities of First Nations children, like their languages, histories and cultures.

Executive director Lorne Keeper says he’s optimistic it will change the face of First Nations education.

The schools involved are receiving more funding from the federal government than before.

Director of system development Nora Murdock said First Nations schools used to get roughly $8,000 per student, and now, it’s around $18,000.
