Postsecondary institutions honour Indigenous History Month

Postsecondary institutions across Canada are honouring Indigenous History Month with initiatives and events. Algonquin College has created an Indigenous language video series that will teach viewers some common words and sayings in the traditional AnishinĂ be Algonquin language, while institutions like Royal Roads University shared resources for learning more about the local community. Algoma University, Royal Roads, the University of Waterloo, and the University of British Columbia highlighted events such as workshops, flag raising ceremonies, smudging ceremonies, soup and bannock lunches, and seminars that are being held over the month. Leaders such as University of Alberta Vice-Provost (Indigenous Programming and Research) Dr Florence Glanfield and MacEwan University President Dr Annette Trimbee also published reflections on the work done to ensure Indigenous peoples have equitable educational opportunities.
