The University of Lethbridge now has a protocol handbook for faculty, staff, students, board, and senate members for incorporating Blackfoot and other First Nations, Métis and Inuit cultural elements into activities or ceremonies on campus. “We also felt that it was important to gather the knowledge about these processes together in one place, and to have them affirmed by members of the U of L community and the FNMI community for the future. An important outcome will be to increase access to Elders for students and other members of the university community,” said Dr. Judith Lapadat, associate vice president (students), in a news release. Dr. Leroy Little Bear, a professor of Native American Studies and the FNMI advisor to the president, and Roy Weasel Fat, interim director of the FNMI Centre, led the development of the handbook.
