The academic and administrative team of the Wekimün project: "A school for and with indigenous youth and their communities" is made up of highly capable Canadian and Chilean professionals committed to the Williche people.
Dr. Kate Tilleczek (University of Prince Edward Island in Canada - UPEI) and Manuel Muñoz Millalonko, M.S. (General Council of the Williche Chiefs of Chiloé), are jointly leading the project.
Our multi-disciplinary, international team work together across continents. The goals of this collaboration are curriculum development, research, community involvement, creation of programs and guidelines, as well as the construction of Wekimün School facilities.
“Wekimün School could become an important initiative to avoid the disappearance of indigenous communities”.
