LETHBRIDGE, AB – Lethbridge College is adding a new online Cultural Support program as part of its Indigenous Services.
Twice a week, students will be able to meet with the college’s elders and grandparents over Zoom to engage in prayers, virtual smudging, traditional teachings and fireside chats.
Indigenous Student Support Coordinator, Lowel Yellowhorn, says Indigenous culture has been forced to adapt a lot of its in-person traditions during the COVID-19 pandemic but the elders are ready and willing to offer their help.
More information about the Cultural Support program can be found on the Lethbridge College website.
