UCDSB schools celebrating Indigenous History Month

Kids all over the region will get to spend the last few weeks of the school year learning about Indigenous History and Culture. 

The Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) has outlined its plans to commemorate Indigenous History Month, a national initiative held every June since 2009. 

In addition to kids getting some in-class education, staff members say students in grades 4-12 are also being invited to a presentation hosted by Alwyn Morris, an Olympic Gold Medalist and member of the Turtle Clan from the Mohawk Nation of Kahnawake. 

“Providing Indigenous and non-Indigenous students alike access to rich and authentic programming about Indigenous culture and history is vital to ensuring we are being true to our commitment to Truth and Reconciliation,” explains Board Chair John McAllister. “I’m very proud of all we offer in this area and excited about where we are going.” 

We’ve reached out to some local UCDSB schools to learn what they have planned to celebrate Indigenous History Month.
