- “Start early in showing and talking about the value of a good education to children. Education is not just about learning English and math; it is also about learning traditional knowledge and life in the community. Children need to be taught both. It is our responsibility as community members and parents to ensure that our children have skills to be functioning and contributing members to our families and communities.” Tommy Fiddler - Bearskin Lake First Nation and NNEC Elder
- "I view education as an experience and growth opportunity rather than a means to add credentials to your name. Without humility and self-respect, you cannot have empathy or an understanding of other people’s needs...Education can give you the resources to be able to make informed decisions." Melissa Capay-Garner - Lac Seul First Nation
