Indigenous Content

Creating educational content that supports data science skills development and promotes cross-cultural understanding is important to Callysto. The learning modules on this page were created in an effort to promote cross-cultural understanding as well as celebrate Indigenous culture.

Before you get started on a learning module, go to our Get Started guide. This guide will lead you through the basics of how our learning modules work.

We’d like to thank the Tla'amin Nation nation and members Ms. Betty Wilson, Ms. Gail Blaney, Mr. Tyler Peters, and Mr. Alex Sutcliffe for helping us create our basket weaving and fish trap learning modules.
