Bakwam Accord - Example from VIU STTP 2021 Cohort

Nanwakolas Logo

The 2021 VIU STTP Cohort created a Bakwam Accord at the beginning of the program to set out their shared values. Entitled “’Namwayut – We Are All One,” the Accord emphasizes the importance of maya’xala (respect) for all living things and for each other, inside and out of the classroom. It describes their expectations of each other, and equally importantly, of themselves.

This Bakwam Accord is an example of the type of document that can be created from the Developing an Indigenous Guardian Program Accord worksheet.
