“My experience was phenomenal, and I recommend the Kanawayihetaytan Askiy program to anyone who is part of land resources, land management or who is Indigenous,” said Oralie George.

George is a member of Alderville First Nation, part of the Mississauga (Michi Sagig) Ojibway Nation, which is located east of Toronto, Ont. Her spirit name is Niimi Miigizi Kwe which means Dancing Eagle Woman. Her Clan is Bear, Mkwa n Dodem.

George will officially receive her Kanawayihetaytan Askiy Certificate at USask Spring Convocation, taking place on June 5 at Merlis Belsher Place.

Kanawayihetaytan Askiy (KA) means “let us take care of the land” in Cree. The KA program examines environmental, legal, and economic aspects of land and resource management in Indigenous communities. Students learn about Indigenous rights, strategic planning, land use planning, traditional knowledge, resource management, intellectual property law, and project management.

This academic program is offered by the College of Agriculture and Bioresources at the University of Saskatchewan (USask) and offers both certificate and diploma options.
