FNTI Testimonials

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

“I love this program, it is helping me gain so many tools culturally, and helping start and further myself in my own journey! I will be forever grateful for this experience. Even though it’s been the most challenging but most rewarding experiences thus far.”


- Mikayla Brennan, CJS

“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.”
