What They Are Saying About FNTI...

“The morning circle ceremony is something I look forward to every day in class. It is a meaningful way to start the day. Smudging and prayer start the day in such a positive comforting way. Classmates are more of family than just classmates. I find it so important and rewarding to learn of the Indigenous culture. I share the knowledge I learn in this course, which I think many people need to know about, Canadian history.”


- Samantha Halstead, MHA

“Viewing individuals capture their voices through songs, stories, prayers, etc. Warms my heart when individuals who don’t normally engage in these aloud, when they finally do – it makes me proud for them. Gaining positive friendships.”


- Anonymous, MHA
