Opportunities for indigenous ways of knowing and experiential learning are woven through all curriculum and in classes throughout Livingstone Range School Division. We believe that all students should have access to indigenous programming and possiblities.
Land-Based Camps are incredible opportunities for students to discover indigenous ways of knowing and learn from Elders and Knowledge Keepers. We couldn't do it without our partners: Actua, and University of Lethbridge Destination Exploration.

Blackfoot Culture Series
The Blackfoot Culture Series takes students on a year-long exploration of Blackfoot activities, food, ways of knowing, and sites. The course is taught by indigenous instructors and meets on Fridays throughout the school year. Students work on a portfolio of learning for the opportunity to earn special projects credits. Topics include:
