ULethbridge announces official opening of Iikaisskini (Low Horn) Gathering Centre

The University of Lethbridge has unveiled the Iikaisskini (Low Horn) Gathering Centre. The gathering centre provides a welcoming space for Indigenous students and the campus community to learn, celebrate, and participate in ceremonies. The name Iikaisskini was chosen in honour of Dr Leroy Little Bear, and recognizes his contributions to ULethbridge and Indigenous Peoples. “[I]f you can picture a buffalo with its head down in attack mode, that’s what the low horn really refers to,” said Little Bear. The gathering centre is designed to be appropriate for ceremony and smudging and will provide a place for students and Elders to meet to share stories, teaching, and wisdom.
