Vision

Our vision is to acknowledge and honor the past, present, and future. We commit to honor and respect our culture, traditions, and Anishinaabe ways of life by ensuring our student’s success.

Values

We will be guided by our seven grandfather/grandmother teachings:

  • Zaagidiwin (Love) “To know love is to know peace.”
  • Debwewin (Truth) “Truth is to know all of these things.”
  • Mnaadendmowin (Respect) “To honor all creation is to have respect.”
  • Nbwaakaawin (Wisdom) “To cherish knowledge is to know wisdom.
  • Dbaadendiziwin (Humility) “Humility is to know yourself as a sacred part of creation.”
  • Gwekwaadziwin (Honesty) “Honesty in facing the situation is to be brave.”
