The First Peoples' House is more than just an academic support service for Indigenous students. Here at the First Peoples' House we believe in actively engaging in community building to ensure a healthy and safe environment where our students can thrive. The First Peoples' House offers a number of programs throughout the year aimed at meeting the academic and cultural needs of our students. This includes providing weekly cultural events such as Drumming, Beadings, and Traditional dance sessions, as well as providing academic-based programming such as monthly workshops offered by Amber, as well as both Finding Your Voice sessions. Together these programs aim to heighten the support offered by the First Peoples' House and work to foster an environment where all Indigenous students can find success at McGill. Join our First Peoples' House family and learn more about our fun and free activities throughout the year.
