Lighting the Fire

Manitoba First Nations Education Resource Centre is proud to introduce the theme of this year’s Lighting the Fire Conference:

Sharing Our Success, Living a Good Life

Achieving holistic well-being has always been a goal of First Nations. This year’s Lighting the Fire will showcase creative, fun and educational ways professionals can help students to achieve mental, physical, spiritual and emotional well-being. Participants will explore various and diverse educational models for First Nations. 

Through the incorporation of First Nations knowledge and perspectives, First Nations schools have developed exciting new educational programs to provide opportunities for all learners to achieve: mino-pimatisiwin; honso aynai; and tokatakiya wichoniwashte. Sharing our stories will help every one of our schools achieve even more success.
