MCFN opens office on UTM campus

The Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation (MCFN) have opened an office in the Maanjiwe nendamowinan building at the University of Toronto Mississauga campus. The office provides space for council members to conduct business at UTM, including planning and executing research, teaching, and collaboration work. The new office is part of a larger series of efforts to strengthen the relationship between UTM and MCFN. “It is a wonderful opportunity for higher education to recognize our First Nation and to be able to share in our ongoing story of truth and reconciliation,” said MCFN Elder Garry Sault. “It is important to have actual people at the university who will be utilizing the information that we provide so that future generations of colonial entities will be able to glean a clear picture of how the First Nations lived in the past and are moving forward in the future.” U of T| NationTalk Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
