Lisa Michano-Courchene (Education Director)

Language revitalization is part of our bigger collective movement to rebuild Biigtigong Nishnaabeg and re-affirm our Biigtigong Nishnaabeg identity. Our curriculum development and language revitalization projects will be jointly coordinated to ensure we develop the best education for our children based on Nishnaabe life-affirming teachings. Our journey is about self-determination and our right to claim that we are Nishnaabe.

Lisa brings vision, creative ideas, and a strong belief that everything we do should be grounded in our Nishnaabe ways of being. Her knowledge of Biigtigong and the profound love in her heart for our ancestors and generations to come, allows her to ensure that our efforts today honour both our past and our future. Lisa will help connect Biigtigong Nishnaabemwin to the lives of our children.
