Lheidli T'Enneh Flag Raising at College of New Caledonia
On Friday, Nov. 24, 2017, the Lheidli T’enneh First Nation’s flag will be raised for the first time at the College of New Caledonia’s (CNC) Prince George campus. The Nation’s flag will fly prominently alongside the Canadian flag, the British Columbian flag and CNC’s own flag outside the College.
The flag raising honours the historic “We Learn Together” Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signed by CNC and the Lheidli T’enneh First Nation June 21, 2017. The MOU sets a strong foundation for a future working relationship based on principles of respect, communication, trust and understanding.
The agreement informs continued work on Indigenizing curriculum and student services at CNC and builds a co-operative, long-lasting and mutually beneficial relationship for the advancement of education and research-related goals.
