Service Award

The Prince George Native Friendship Centre was honoured with the Jeanne Clarke Local History Award for Service for Skeh Baiyoh Childcare Centre. The Centre incorporates Indigenous teaching practices into early childhood education. Skeh Baiyoh weaves together Aboriginal Head Start philosophy and early childhood education best practices with critical aspects of Carrier culture. Children learn about the Lheidli T'enneh by gaining exposure to language, social gatherings, traditions, and the wisdom of Elders. Skeh Baiyoh also partners with outside organizations to expand awareness of Lheidli T’enneh history and culture, which continues to thrive even after centuries of colonization.
