On June 20, 2017, LRSD School Board Chair Chris Sigurdson signed Winnipeg's Indigenous Accord on behalf of the Louis Riel School Division.
Winnipeg's Indigenous Accord is a living document to guide our shared commitment to the Journey of Truth and Reconciliation in our city. We are proud to stand in support of the Accord as we actively work towards truth and reconciliation every day in our Division.
Throughout the recent school years, we have made it a priority to capture our commitments to reconciliation and the Accord through videos. We've had the chance to share our work with the LRSD community by not only explaining what we’re doing, but showing how the students and staff in LRSD are actively engaging in our Indigenous Education initiatives.
We are proud to share our year of accomplishments through the video above. We invite you to take the time to join us on our journey towards our goals with the Winnipeg Indigenous Accord and towards Truth and Reconciliation in our school division, city and country.
Working together we can educate and engage our students, families and community in reconciliation. Together we can build a more truthful understanding of our past, our present and how we are shaping the future. Together we are changing and reconciling our worlds.
