UNBC and Lheidli T’enneh Sign MOU
Prince George, B.C. – A big step forward in the relationship between the Lheidli T’enneh and the University of Northern British Columbia (UNBC).
Both parties signed a memorandum of understanding during a ceremony this morning aimed at strengthening ties between the two groups.
To celebrate, a new sign was unveiled at the campus entrance on University Way. Inscribed on the sign is “House of Learning” in the Carrier language.
“These are symbols and symbols are incredibly important because behind these symbols is evidence of our partnership and our commitment to each other,” said UNBC president Dr. Daniel Weeks. “We are going to continue this not only on this campus but also on our campuses throughout the north in the local dialects there.”
“It doesn’t matter if we didn’t do it in the past, we think of the future and this day is a special day for our community, a special day for the university and for everyone who attends the university and hopefully more students from our community,” added Lheidli T’enneh Chief Dominick Frederick.
A new flag pole has also been installed in the rose garden near the bus loop where the Lheidli T’enneh flag will now fly.
