In the Spirit of Canada, students and teachers from SHDHS and GDCI joined together to learn and grow.
Through the Spirit of Canada program, facilitated by Me to We, we developed a deeper understanding of the history and status of First Nations, Metis and Inuit people in Canada. In doing this, we addressed and challenged the stereotypes and discrimination that can hold Canadians back from a true understanding of one another. With the valuable input of our teachers and students; some who were of First Nations background and some who weren’t, we found that the common goal of ending discrimination against First Nations, Metis and Inuit people can lead to ally-ship and a deeper understandings for all of us.
