The GABRIEL DUMONT INSTITUTE OF NATIVE STUDIES AND APPLIED RESEARCH (DUMONT INSTITUTE) grew out of a recommendation of the Cultural Conference of the Association of Metis and Non-Status Indians held in 1976. The recommendation was for a Metis Cultural College. October 17, 1980 was the official opening of the College, named the Dumont Institute, in Regina.
The mandate of the DUMONT INSTITUTE includes: 2) historical and cultural research and programme evaluation; and b) curriculum and resource development. The aime of the institute is to help native people "find themselves so that they can live with a sense of self-respect and pride among their Non-Native brothers and sisters.
The DUMONT INSTITUE seeks to accomplish this through a Native-controlled educational institution, and by re-establishing Native historical-cultural roots. These goals are attained through developing and offering courses to strengthen Native cultural awarness , developing unique Native education programmes and establishing a Library Resource Centre. The INSTITUTE is organizing a Native Studies Programme, and has established the Saskatchewan Urban Native Teacher Education Programme to futher accomplish its goals.
