Indigenous Education and Community Engagement


Native american Thunderbird symbol

VCC’s journey towards decolonization, Indigenization, and reconciliation is rooted in a thoughtful understanding of history, alignment with the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action and the United Nation Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP), an acknowledgement of past and persisting racism, and a commitment to improve educational and career outcomes for Indigenous people.
