Peace River Schools to display Treaty 8, Metis Flags

The board had been considering raising the flags at their schools since 2018.

 

The Peace River School Division will soon display the Treaty 8 and Metis Nation flags at all of their schools.

The board of trustees passed the motion on October 17.

Board Chair Darren Kuester says in a statement that they decided to display the flags to quote “honor traditional land, Indigenous culture and to impact change and support reconciliation through education”.

He adds it’s a way for their schools to recognize the relationship they have with Indigenous people in the area.
