Education


Saskatoon Tribal Council provides education programs and services to children and youth in our seven-member First Nations through the Saskatoon Tribal Council Education Corporation (STCEC).

The STCEC was created in 2019 and includes the member First Nation communities. Together we are working to reclaim responsibility for education on member reserves using a new education model that supports the administrative, governance, management and legislative requirements of the schools.

STCEC member schools:

  • Chief Mistawasis School, Mistawasis First Nation
  • Kihiw Waciston School, Muskeg Lake Cree Nation
  • Muskoday First Nation Community School, Muskoday First Nation
  • Almightyvoice Education Centre, One Arrow First Nation
  • Nibwakawigamig Kinistin Education Centre, Kinistin Saulteaux First Nation
  • Nawigizigweyas Education Centre, Yellowquill First Nation

Charles Red Hawk Elementary School on the Whitecap Dakota First Nation is served through a separate partnership with Saskatoon Public Schools.

STCEC believes:

  • Education is the key to decolonization.
  • The best way to enhance the educational experience of our students and drive student success is to ensure our schools are safe, secure and healthy, and our communities are healthy, vibrant, and equipped to address issues related to trauma and well-being.

STCEC goals:

  • Increased graduation rates.
  • Student success in post-secondary education.
  • The needs and aspirations of our children and youth are met.
  • The quality of life for our First Nations youth and children is enhanced.

STCEC’s focus:

  • Coordinate programming that emphasizes an Indigenous curriculum and pedagogy.
  • Ensure culture, language and Indigeneity are taught and learned.
  • Ensure our communities have access to supports such as educational consultants, speech pathologists and education psychologists.
