This past summer, I had the distinct pleasure of working with Christopher Stock to co-create and deliver a program for students who identify as Indigenous within the Trillium Lakelands District School Board.

Christopher’s dedication to advising the program’s cultural component and delivering meaningful cultural teachings was an incredible asset and student feedback was effusive with praise. Christopher is highly committed and passionate about teaching traditional Kanien’keha:ka knowledge and culture to both Indigenous and Non-indigenous youth.

Christopher demonstrated deep expertise and an innate ability to engage personally with students through an online platform. The widespread adoption of remote learning is an exciting opportunity to scale the number of youth whom he can teach, interact and inspire. I am thrilled that Christopher will be able to further support students through virtual programming and look forward to following his continued success in engaging youth in traditional teachings.
