Education Team Meeting

Education • July 6, 2023

Recently, a team of BC-based educators gathered at the Nikkei National Museum & Cultural Centre in Burnaby. Joining them was the core Teacher Education advisory committee of Masako Fukawa, Greg Miyanaga, Vivian Wakabayashi Rygnestad, and Connie Kadota, Project Director Mike Perry-Whittingham, and members of the JC Legacies team. This was the first face-to-face meeting of the Teacher Education team. In the course of the invigorating day-long session, the educators were treated to presentations by the advisory committee as well as special guests Mary and Tosh Kitagawa, followed by a round table discussion on next steps. We look forward to updating the community as the Education initiative of JC Legacies moves along.

Japanese Canadian Legacies are initiatives that honour our elders past and present. We are grateful to be doing this work on the ancestral lands of the Coast Salish peoples.
