MFNERC is proud to present this year’s Lighting the Fire Conference on May 10-12, 2023 at the Victoria Inn Hotel and Convention Centre in Winnipeg.
The Manitoba First Nations Education Resource Centre is pleased to announce the Lighting the Fire Conference 2023 will be held at the Victoria Inn, Winnipeg, from May 10th to 12th. This year’s theme, Break Through to Excellence in First Nation Education, will be the focus of the workshops and presentations that make up much of the gathering.
Lighting the Fire presentations and discussions will reflect the important work that the Resource Centre is doing to push forward the boundaries of First Nations education, not only in forwarding teaching skills and the revitalization of First Nations cultures but also providing cutting-edge services in the areas of administration, new technology, and clinical care, which includes mental health and special needs services as well as care for students who fall under Jordan’s Principle.
The Resource Centre seeks out excellence in everything that can improve the learning experience for First Nation students and teaching staff. This year’s Lighting the Fire conference will explore the tools, resources, and teaching approaches that promote excellence in First Nation schools. As always, the conference workshops will resonate with the importance of First Nations languages and cultures to strengthen student identity and encourage their gifts.
