Border Land School Division teachers, principals and senior administration spent September 18 and 19 participating in Treaty Education Initiative (TEI) training. Facilitated by the  provincial TEI team, participants learned about the historical context of treaties and treaty making, participated in demonstration lessons, and learned about about links to the Manitoba curriculum. Manitoba Treaty Commissioner, Loretta Ross, shared that relationship is embedded in treaties and that treaties are to be understood as relevant as long as "the rivers flow, the sun shines and the grass grows." Each teacher was gifted a TEI kit filled with resources to support instruction.
