Elder in Residence
Elders frequently visit campuses to provide counselling and traditional teachings and to lead ceremonies throughout the year. If you would like to meet with an Elder, contact your university’s Indigenous student centre.
Participation in workshops is a great way for you to meet other members of the Indigenous community, learn a cultural skill and de-stress from your studies and exams. Workshops may include beading, drum-making, moccasin-making and traditional cooking.
For more information about workshops and events, contact your university’s Indigenous student centre.
Feasts and Gatherings
Gatherings, socials and potlucks are other opportunities for you to connect with fellow Indigenous students and, at the same time, feast on your favourite Indigenous foods.
Gatherings may include local drummers and dancers, soup and bannock days and weekly or monthly feasts.
