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).
We will Honour the diversity among indigenous cultures, Honour the inherent and treaty rights of our peoples, Celebrate and sustain our environments, languages, cultures and identities, Develop a legacy of knowledge and teachings for life long learning.
Our staff are dedicated to the vision and mission of IKWC. We work hard to meet the needs of our communities – for both present and future members – through an environment that promotes integrity, respect, sensitivity and fairness. Our success depends upon high-performing staff, who work together in a workplace where diversity, professional and personal development, teamwork and effort are valued and recognized.
