Cultural Programming

We recognize the importance culture plays in the success of our students

That's why the First Peoples' House offers a variety of weekly programming aimed at the promotion of a healthy connection to our Indigenous roots. We aim to offer a variety of programming that creates a safe and welcome environment for our students to explore and express their identities in a way that only heightens their Universiy experience. That's why we are proud to offer a variety of weekly programs including-

  • Weekly drumming sessions with the opportunity to perform at events such as the First Peoples' House Pow Wow
  • Beading sessions providing an opportunity to explore one's creative side
  • Mukluk making programming with the chance to make one's own very own pair of Mukluks
  • Traditional Dance sessions led by our very own Thomassina, learn a variety of traditional Indigenous style dances including Fancy Shawl, Jingle, and Hoop Dancing
