Kumtuks (Chinook word for “knowledge”) has posted a new video about the Vancouver School Board’s approach to BC History. The Lord Roberts School name change decision has presented the opportunity to teach some history and advocate for a more inclusive name changing process.

The Kumtuks project is based in British Columbia and features videos and articles that educate the public about its history, public policy and general knowledge, hosted by former mayor, Sam Sullivan.
Kumtuks tells the story of our remarkable province and seeks to honour the multicultural, secular, socially and environmentally responsible ethic that was part of the pre-colonial governance of proto-British Columbia.
