Corey Ralph Whitford has been teaching at RRC Polytech in the Indigenous Languages Program for five years, teaching through activities that shape a better understanding of Anishinaabemowin. Corey is eager to share his knowledge and provide guidance in all class activies to his students.
Corey was born in Portage la Prairie, and raised in Sandy Bay. His parents are from Long Plain and Sandy Bay, and both were fluent Anishinaabeg. Corey's family spoke/speaks Anishinaabemowin, so he naturally picked it up along the way.
Corey is passionate about what he does, continuing to serve his community and fill the vacuum for Anishinaabemowin knowledge at the College level.
The Immersive Stories program will offer participants a first-hand opportunity to gain more knowledge and understanding about multi-layered socio-cultural identities and lived experiences. This will contribute to an enhanced skillset that will help them to regularly check their personal, social and cultural assumptions, and manage quick conclusions and judgments. This in turn will contribute to our efforts to foster a diverse and inclusive College environment for students and faculty.
Register to attend this Immersive Stories session.
