Cultural Resource Elders
The Iniikokaan Aboriginal Centre is proud to offer learners access to our Cultural Resource Elders Dila Provost and Doris Calliou. Created through funding support from Imperial Oil Foundation and the Royal Bank Foundation, the Cultural Resource Elders share cultural and spiritual ways of knowing in their work with students and staff at Bow Valley College.
BVC Learners may request a personal consultation with our Elders on any personal or social issue which is of concern. The Cultural Resource Elders facilitate a Sharing Circle with students, and also the Elders lead the Smudge Ceremony in the large gathering place.
For more information on the Elders' visits each month, please contact the BVC Aboriginal Centre.
