We are taking back control over the education of our children. As a Nation, we must vote yes and approve these 2 documents in order for us to reclaim control of our preschool to Grade 12 community education:
1. Process for how our Education Law will be developed and approved (Education Law-Making Protocol)
2. An education agreement with Canada (Jurisdiction Agreement)
Once our Nation has voted yes, we can start developing our own education system and law—one that is uniquely Sḵwx̱wú7mesh.

Residential schools aimed to take our language, culture and heritage from us and we have been working to overcome that and reclaim our community’s right to educate our children, our way. Now we have an opportunity to take back control of our community education from preschool to Grade 12.
By overseeing our education system, we can make decisions in the best interest of our learners. This is our chance to return to Sḵwx̱wú7mesh ways of education and work as a community to build an education system that promotes, protects, and revitalizes our language and culture.
Our children will be taught based on Sḵwx̱wú7mesh worldview and will grow up confident in their values and heritage.
