District Indigenization Coordinator
Oki tsanitapii! My name is Jesse Halton. My mum is Piikani and my father is British and Scandinavian. I’ve been working in Aboriginal Programming and Aboriginal Education since I convocated from the University of Alberta, Faculté Saint Jean with a Baccalauréat en Éducation in 2004. I have some traditional transferred ceremonial rights and have gained knowledge throughout the years from elders, family, local knowledge keepers, mentors, and youth. I love making art, traditional hand-work, and gardening. I’m passionate about food, music, and swimming in the lake! I am excited to be in this role for the district this year sharing and gaining knowledge with the team and advancing Indigenous voice and perspective in our school district.
