Mission Statement

To educate with discipline and compassion so that Indigenous and other communities will be inspired by creative, intelligent individuals. They will in turn nurture, serve, lead, and bring justice to the world

Vision Statement

Maskwacis Cultural College is a ‘Centre of Excellence in Academics and Cree Indigenous Knowledge’

Guiding Principles

The Creator (K’se Manto) is the heart of the college. We will continue to advance and preserve: iyiniw pimatsiwin, ekwa
iyiniw mamitoneyicekan (indigenous forms of life and thinking). At its most fundamental level, we will remember dreams and visions (nistameymahkanak) for future generations. It was the founding members of MCC who embraced the concept of higher learning.
