‘Enhancing students’ pride and success through traditional
Okanagan and Similkameen people`s ways of learning.’

We honor the traditions of the sukənaqin* and sməlqmix* people and support their commitment to the preservation of nsíyilxcən* and culture, and further, we acknowledge the nsíyilxcən as the principle language of this territory.  Our enhancement agreement honors our partnerships and recognizes the collective responsibility for the success of all Indigenous learners.The Indigenous Education Advisory Council represents interests in the design, implementation and assessment of programs and services to improve the school experience and academic achievement of Indigenous students.
