Visiting Elders Program | Assiniboine Community College
Visiting Elders Program

Visiting Elders offer wisdom and encouragement and represent a diverse range of Indigenous cultures and teachings. The Visiting Elders Program represents Dakota, Ojibway, Cree, St'at'imc and Métis Nations who provide guidance, teachings, historical information, cultural knowledge and support to all students.

Elders are available at our Brandon and Dauphin campuses. Although not always present on campus, Elders will meet with students anytime there is a request to do so. Meeting with an Elder may be as informal as a casual visit or can include cultural or spiritual knowledge and guidance at your request.

 Our Elders offer wisdom, encouragement, and represent a diverse rage of Indigenous cultures:
