About

The First Peoples Post-secondary Storytelling Exchange is about creating more responsive post secondary education for Indigenous
students and honouring Indigenous approaches to teaching and learning through storytelling exchanges, talking circles and filmmaking.

Throughout this four-year process, 115 people from more than twenty First Nations, Inuit and Métis communities shared stories of
education and learning at school, college, university, in family and on the land.

The First Peoples’ Postsecondary Storytelling Exchange Project (2016-2019) is a multiple institution project funded by a Partnership
Development Grant through SSHRC’s Community and College Social Innovation Fund (CCSIF).
