UPDATE: June 27, 2016

It has been almost a year since a devastating fire destroyed the Red Crow Community College campus on the Blood Indian Reserve. Lost in the fire were Furniture, Computers, Audio Visual Equipment, Office Equipment, Supplies, Books, irreplaceable Cultural Artefacts, and Student Records. With an estimated loss of over $10-Million, Red Crow Community College is now ready to move forward despite very little post-fire donations and a lengthy insurance claims process.
