The Métis Cultural Program at Westmount Community School has been created to preserve, strengthen and transmit Métis culture and traditions in Saskatchewan. The program engages students from Kindergarten to Grade 8 and is delivered from the Métis perspective. This program aligns with Saskatchewan curricula and meets arts education, English language arts and social studies outcomes. Students are engaged in building Métis cultural leadership skills and experience inter-generational learning opportunities.
This program has been developed with the support of school-based and central office leaders, SUNTEP graduates and classroom teachers. Partnerships and support from Central Urban Métis Federation Incorporated (CUMFI) and Gabriel Dumont Institute (GDI) are essential to the success of the Métis Cultural Program.
