Indigenous Cultural Awareness Week

Northern College will be hosting its third annual Indigenous Cultural Awareness Week from Monday, September 21 to Friday, September 25, 2015.

The week will provide an opportunity for students, staff, faculty and members of the community to celebrate and showcase the richness of local Indigenous cultures that Northern College is fortunate to be a part of.

Activities planned for the week include cultural teachings, arts and crafts workshops, traditional food preparation and information sessions with community organizations. Awareness Week events are open to the general public as well as college students and staff.

Indigenous Cultural Awareness Week relates directly to one of the college’s four strategic directions, Indigenous Perspectives. Northern College is committed to holding meaningful dialogue and developing partnerships with Indigenous leaders, learners, communities and employers, and building on strong relationships that have already been established.
