UNBC makes a step forward


UNBC makes another step forward

by Grant Bachand


The University of Northern British Columbia and the Lheidli T’enneh signed a Memorandum of Understanding. The ceremony which was held Friday morning saw the unveiling of a sign at the entrance of UNBC in the Dakehl (Carrier) language which reads “House of Learning.” Accompanying the unveiling of the sign a Lheidli T'enneh flag has now been hoisted to fly high amongst the Canadian, British Columbia and Prince George flags.

“These permanent fixtures on campus are just more examples of how the UNBC community and the Lheidli T’enneh can continue to build a co-operative, long-lasting and mutually beneficial relationship where principles of respect, communication, trust and understanding will lead to positive and meaningful collaborations and partnerships.” - Daniel Weeks President of UNBC

This will be one of many steps forward in educating the students, staff and faculty at UNBC about the history of Prince George and the Lheidli T’enneh. Weeks talked about a new program going to be launched which will help educate new students, staff and faculty about the history as well.
