McMaster officially opens Indigenous Health Learning Lodge

McMaster University has opened a new Indigenous Health Learning Lodge (IHLL) at the Faculty of Health Sciences (FHS). The lodge, which officially opened yesterday, is named Tsi nón:we ayakonniyóhake táhnon aonsayakota’karitehake in Haudenosaunee and Mino Bimaadiziwin Mishkiki Aapjishnik Gamik’ in Anishinaabe. It provides a home for Indigenous faculty, staff, and students, as well as a space for those who would like to know more about Indigenization in the health sciences. IHLL is a hub for curriculum development and training, and will focus on advocacy and raising awareness. Its establishment is also a response to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s recommendations, and IHLL will work on weaving Indigenous education into existing FHS programs and creating an Indigenous-specific curriculum.
