Honouring Indigenous Heritage and Knowledge

Door square

Greetings, York community,

Wishing everyone on campus and beyond a happy National Aboriginal Day! In honour of the long-standing relationship our University has to Indigenous heritage and knowledge, and in full acknowledgment of York’s presence on the traditional territories of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, the Huron-Wendat Nation and the Métis Nation, as well as on territory of the Mississaugas of the New Credit Nation, we encourage you today to take a moment to think about this connection and the importance of open dialogue.

To find out more about York’s Centre for Aboriginal Student Services (CASS) and young Indigenous voices on campus, follow the conversation our colleagues at the YUBlog had with two Work/Study students at CASS.

Skennen (in peace)
