Indigenous Art by Michelle Stoney
In 2021, the STA Executive struck a Truth and Reconciliation Committee with the directive to build an STA TRC Calls to Action Plan. One piece of our Action Plan involved highlighting one of the Seven Sacred Teachings each month in the school year. This year, we will continue to share these teachings with you.

Each of the seven sacred teachings is represented by an animal. We have created posters in English and French that teachers can use digitally or print and use on bulletin boards.
We encourage you to learn with your students about why each animal has been chosen for each teaching.
