Grand Council Treaty #3 proud to support Kiizhik elementary students on Global Dignity Day

The Anishinaabe Nation of Treaty #3 is proud to support the elementary students from Kiizhik Education Centre who participated in Global Dignity Day Canada. The students opened the event with a traditional Flag Song and prayer in the Anishinaabe language.

Ogichidaa Francis Kavanaugh stated “It is an exciting day for the children who attend Kiizhik Gakinoo’amaadiiwi’gamig. It is important for us to showcase the talents of our youngest generation as they demonstrate pride in their language and culture.”

In 2014, the First Nations communities of Bimose Tribal Council established the Kiizhik Education Corporation. The vision of our Elders and leaders was to establish an Anishinaabe school to teach and practice our culture, language, and traditions in an academic setting.

Global Dignity Day Canada is an independent, non-political organization focused on empowering individuals with the concept that every human being has the universal right to lead a dignified life. It links together hundreds of students across the country as part of its national event.

Grand Council Treaty #3 (GCT3) is the Traditional government of the Anishinaabe Nation in Treaty #3.
