Education Governance Initiative

Supporting Listuguj Mi'gmaq in Reclaiming Their Education

Governance involves the worldviews, values, protocols and the management structures (i.e., mechanisms, processes, strategies, vision, mission) that community, or an organization, uses to make decisions and accomplish its goals. 

Education Transformation

Transformation involves respecting and centering Mi'gmaw knowledges, history, language, beliefs, in education programs, services, and policies, and carefully including Western theory and practices. Empowering people to make changes and try new ideas.
