St Mary’s University has completed the set-up of a teaching tipi on its campus. The tipi will stay up from spring to fall, but will be taken down when it snows. The space will be used as a gathering space for Indigenous students on campus, for hosting Elders on campus, and for discussions about Indigenous ways of knowing. Faculty and staff members will also be welcome to use it as a space for workshops and small classes. The tipi was commissioned with guidance from St Mary’s Indigenous Advisory Council and built with the Tsuut’ina Nation.
