The College of the Rockies is recognizing National Indigenous History Month with three weekly virtual presentations by Indigenous speakers Alfred Joseph, Michelle Sam, and Marlin Ratch.

Ktunaxa Elder and Knowledge Holder Alfred Joseph gave the first presentation last week. Over one hundred people signed in via Zoom. His talk focused on truth and reconciliation.

Joseph began his hour long presentation by charting the history of when the first catholic missionary came to the Columbia Valley.

From there, he addressed a variety of topics, including his thoughts on the changing of names Indigenous people have been referred to through the years.
