Our Story

The Indigenous Knowledge & Wisdom Centre (IKWC) is not a new idea as it was borrowed from Citizens Plus, June 1970. This concept was called the ‘Alberta Indian Education Centre’ and was designed to promote studies of Indian history, culture, language and values (Citizens Plus, Indian Chiefs of Alberta, June 1970).
