Elder-in-Residence Program

Cumberland College would like to acknowledge that the College is located on Treaty 4, Treaty 5, and Treaty 6 territories and upon the  Homeland of the Métis Nation of Saskatchewan - something that very much influenced our College's history and development and will continue to be important for our collective future.  

We are all Treaty People

Cumberland College is pleased to have Elders and Knowledge Keepers to offer support and guidance to our students and staff. They are one of our most valuable resources and are the keepers of sacred stories, songs, language, culture, and traditions that formulate the basis of understanding that we are all Treaty People. Through our Elder-in-Residence program, Elders are foundational to our desire to create an inclusive and respectful learning community for all.

The Elders-in-Residence program is multifaceted and is woven into the fiber of the College. The Elder’s role continues to grow and evolve with time:
