Name of creator
The "Indian Education Resource Centre" was established in Brock Hall on the UBC campus in 1970. It functioned as a resource centre for Indigenous peoples' education, visiting Indigenous schools, establishing research and curriculum projects, producing the "Indian Education Newsletter," disseminating information about education, and serving as a lobby organization for Indigenous peoples' education in B.C. and across Canada. The centre was funded by government grants and private donations, an association of professionals, para-professionals, and educational community members. The centre was closed in 1978.
