办脓丑迟脓-补测补办 Council: Guiding 果冻传媒 Through Tradition and Innovation

April 30, 2024

The 办脓丑迟脓-补测补办 (Elders) Council at the 果冻传媒 continues to be a pivotal element of the university community, providing spiritual and cultural guidance across its campuses in Regina, Saskatoon, and Prince Albert. Established in 2015, the council, consisting of Elders, Elders鈥 Helpers, and Knowledge Keepers, integrates traditional Indigenous knowledge into university programs and supports students鈥 academic and spiritual needs.

Throughout the 2022-2023 academic year, the council was active in several significant events. Notable activities included a Traditional Campus Naming ceremony at Sturgeon Lake First Nations, where the campus was named 苍脓飞辞蝉办腻苍, symbolizing unity and wholeness. The council also welcomed new members Margaret Rockthunder and Dennis Omeasoo, who brought fresh perspectives to the ongoing cultural initiatives.

Innovative projects such as the Medicinal Plants project led by Dr. Vincent Ziffle and discussions on Indigenous Advising Theory highlighted the council鈥檚 commitment to education and cultural enrichment. A transgender workshop spearheaded by Jack Saddleback and participation in the National Elders Gathering in Edmonton emphasized the council鈥檚 role in addressing contemporary issues like reconciliation and cultural revitalization.

The year also saw the sad passing of three respected council members, whose contributions to the university and broader communities were fondly remembered.

As the council meets thrice annually and participates in various ceremonies and educational initiatives, it remains an essential conduit for cultural preservation and academic support at 果冻传媒.
