AlgomaU, SKG partner to establish SKG as Centre of Excellence in Anishinaabe Education, create Indigenous education school

Algoma University and Shingwauk Kinoomaage Gamig (SKG) have signed a new collaborative agreement and a Memorandum of Understanding. Under these agreements, the parties will work together to ensure SKG successfully becomes an accredited, autonomous, and sustainable Centre of Excellence in Anishinaabe Education, as well as an accredited Indigenous Institute. The partnership will also support the establishment of an Anishinaabe School of Education, which will offer a unique Indigenous-focused teacher education program. “Collaboration and working together is a key tool that enhances our ability to advance Indigenous Education through both mediums at Algoma University and SKG,” said Batchewana First Nation Chief and SKG Board Chair Dean Sayers. “We are fully energized to move Indigenous Education forward, to break new ground, establish new bars, and provide a worldview unlike any other. The ancestors are smiling.”
