Kitchener Indigenous Advocate's Writing Featured on CBC

March 17, 2021 -- Kitchener Community School's Indigenous Advocate, Jessica Madiratta, recently wrote an opinion piece for CBC Saskatchewan. In her writing, she shared her experiences as an Indigenous girl attending school that didn't reflect who she was. The piece reiterates the strength and resilience of Indigenous peoples and how Indigenizing and decolonizing education is for the good of all students.

"...we also must all teach students how strong Indigenous people are...I want to instill children with the knowledge their Indigenous identity deserves to be celebrated, and that they can overcome the negative stereotypes perpetuated in social media and on comment boards."
