Duke of Marlborough Students Participate in Week-long Land-Based Truth and Reconciliation Learning

Duke of Marlborough School in Churchill recently held a transformative week of programming as part of the Four+1 Truth and Reconciliation course. Throughout the week, students learned about the histories of local Indigenous communities, gaining an understanding of their cultural histories, the impacts of colonization, and steps being taken to re-story local history to reflect Indigeneity.

A highlight was participating in the first water ceremony held in living memory in Churchill. Students were also involved with processing of a moosehide that was gifted to them. Daily reflections and sharing sessions were included throughout the week, allowing students to process their shared experiences.

A heartfelt ekosani to Mr. Power for his commitment to this vital work. The school also extends its gratitude to Ashley Watts and the Churchill Northern Studies Centre for their unwavering support throughout the week, and to the local Knowledge Keepers whose guidance enriched the students' learning journey.
