This is a petition to get Indigenous studies taught at JCS.

Please sign this if you are interested in taking this course. 

Our school is named after an Indigenous Artist and yet we still receive a whitewashed education about the land we live on. We go to school every day in a place where we can't even speak the native language. There needs to be a class where we can be taught through an Indigenous point of view, this class would be taught by a person who is actually qualified to teach from this viewpoint. It would be in person like any other class, learn from elders, provide opportunities to go out and learn about how the natural world around us can provide essentials such as medicine. 

This would be an elective course in the 2021-2022 school year and hopefully many years to come. It doesn't require any prerequisites and as an added bonus is could provide university credits if you plan on attending UofA or UBC. 

Enhance your cultural awareness.
