Committee will be comprised of College of the Rockies representatives and Indigenous partners

College of the Rockies, in partnership with their Indigenous partners, including First Nations, Métis Chartered Communities, and the Ktunaxa Nation Council, is launching an Indigenous Advisory Committee.

“This collaboration with our Indigenous partners is part of the College’s ongoing commitment to genuine reconciliation with Indigenous communities in our region,” said Dana Wesley, Executive Director Indigenous Strategy and Reconciliation. “We currently engage closely with Indigenous partners in various ways, but this Advisory Committee will provide a strategic platform for our Indigenous partners to advocate for their educational needs.”

The Indigenous Advisory Committee will incorporate a Distinctions Based Approach, acknowledging the specific rights, interests, priorities, and concerns of each, while respecting and acknowledging these distinct peoples with unique cultures, histories, rights, laws, and governments.
