About the Session:

This webinar will briefly explore historical and contemporary information and resources relating to numbered treaties within Alberta. Educators will build their understanding of the acknowledgment of land and people, as well as our shared responsibilities to the land and each other. Treaty education is a lifelong journey, and this webinar can be an entry point for educators.

This learning opportunity is being offered through a grant from Alberta Education.

About the Presenter(s):
Shannon Loutitt

Shannon is a Div. 2 teacher on secondment from Fort McMurray Public School District.  Shannon grew up in Fort McMurray learning about her Metis heritage and when she was 5 years old she said she wanted to be the first Native lady Prime Minister.  Although that might not happen, she is excited to be working with the ATA on the Walking Together Project to help teachers learn more about the diverse cultures, histories, and contemporary realities of Indigenous peoples in Canada.
