Elder in Residence

Francis First Charger our Blackfoot Elder is on campus one full day each week throughout the fall and spring semesters (September to April).  Francis is from the Blood Tribe, the largest First Nations reserve in Canada. Through traditional teachings and story-telling, Francis offers guidance, cultural support, and encouragement to the campus community. All students, faculty, and staff are welcome and invited to meet with Francis.

While on campus, Francis can be found in the Smudge/Elders Room, A-430 (University Hall) next to the Native American Students’ Association lounge. The Elder's schedule is posted and sent out on Eaglesnest at the beginning of each semester.
