Trent unveils crest of Gidigaa Migizi College

Trent University has unveiled the crest for Gidigaa Migizi College, which was named in honour of the elder, alumnus, and former assistant professor whose English name was Doug Williams-ban. The crest was designed by First Nations artist Jared Tait in consultation with the Elders & Traditional Knowledge Keepers Council. It features a spotted eagle, in recognition of the fact that Gidigaa Migizi means “spotted eagle” in Anishinaabemowin, as well as a pike to reflect the Maashginoozhe clan, a human profile to symbolize ancestral connections, and a portal to signify the link to culture and tradition. It uses Gidigaa Migizi’s colours: Deep blue, green, and turquoise. Trent plans to open the college in 2028.
