UWinnipeg, Brock, UWindsor take steps towards reconciliation and decolonization

The University of Winnipeg, Brock University, and the University of Windsor have all taken recent steps towards reconciliation and decolonization. UWinnipeg permanently installed the Treaty One and Métis flags on campus during a special ceremony. The flags recognize that UWinnipeg sits on traditional Indigenous lands. Brock had its Spirit Bear, Entiohahathé’te, meaning “the path will be bright” in the Kanien’keha (Mohawk) language, attend the Convocation stage for the first time. The Spirit Bear is part of an initiative to address the inequalities faced by Indigenous children, youth, and families. UWindsor hosted an event unveiling a commissioned painting by Ojibway artist John Williams. The painting, called “Crazy Star,” was commissioned as part of a proposal to expand Indigenous representation in Social Work, and hangs in the School for Social Work’s Windsor Hall.
