The James Bay Cree Communications Society has begun the process of archiving all of the audio recordings that it has done over the past 30 years. This is a large undertaking since JBCCS has over 200 separate pieces of media with multiple recordings on each of them. We are taking these media (reel to reels and audio cassettes) and transferring them to a computer. From there we will be able to put the MP3 files on our website so that people can access them. Some of the categories of recordings are: teachings, legends, storytelling, historical events, and conferences. These recordings were also used to create a radio broadcast show called “Wehskaach Diibaachimuun” meaning Old Stories.

Aboriginal Teacher Education Program (ATEP) is going to be back at BQFNC


I just wanted to encourage those who wish to be teachers or even in the education field to apply for the Aboriginal Teacher Education Program offered through the University of Alberta but will be coming to Blue Quills FIrst Nations College this FALL for the 2012-14 school years and you can complete:

  • 3rd & 4th Year: the last 2 years of the Bachelor of Education Degree
  • complete an After-Degree (another undergraduate degree in Education)

As an upcoming graduate this June 2012, I fully support this program.  I not only am receiving a degree from the University of Alberta but I am getting a better education, than on campus students, because I get additional education and training and support to incorporate Aboriginal Perspective and Traditional Knowledge in the school curriculum, something that has been missing from our education system far too long.  Our Aboriginal Children deserve to be taught holistically as originally taught for thousands and thousands of years on Turtle Island.  As a result, you can get a Unique Education with the added benefits of easy access to Elders, and cultural advisors at Blue Quills First Nations College, the 1st Successfully Aboriginally Owned & Operated School in Canada since 1971.

7 Generations* is an epic, 4-book graphic novel series that spans three centuries and seven generations. The central character in the series is Edwin. Edwin, an Aboriginal teenager, must learn of his family’s past if he is to have any future. The impact of his journey of discovery, and the revelation that follows, will change his life.
