School District No. 54 (Bulkley Valley) is located entirely on the territory of the Witsuwit’en Nation. This valley includes many Witsuwit’en communities:

Skin Tyee – on the South side
Baptiste Reserve – near Smithers
The Indigenous Education program provides a wide array of resources and opportunities to enhance the learning opportunities for all learners but specifically Indigenous learners – First Nations, Metis and Inuit. The Indigenous Education staff, together with the families, community, and classroom teachers, respond to the unique educational needs of the Indigenous students in the school district. The Bulkley Valley’s Indigenous Education Enhancement Agreement provides the goals, strategies and structures as a framework for the success of our students.
