The primary objective for the Program is “Restoration of our Traditions, Language, Beliefs and Values. Elders have been hired to become the foundation for the restoration; their knowledge and experiences plays a vital role in “educating our youth” on our Cree Culture, history, language and our way of life. We recognize that the Elders must continue to play an active role in molding our community. They must continue to teach the children, socialize and maintain our traditions so that they persevere with a healthy self-worth The Traditional Program strives to provide alternative opportunities for students who are more successful in using practical, applied learning experiences, rather than text books. Lastly, with the support of the Education Authority, teacher involvement and community networking, it is anticipated that the Traditional curriculum will encompass the basic academics of math, science, geography, history, biology and social studies in the course of their Traditional learning experiences. The Program has an outdoor education program from the high school where there are twenty one students who utilize the Program three times a week. As well, the Head start Program from the Family and Community Wellness Center come twice a month where they have specific outline for what they want to see and experience
