12th Annual Indigenous Awareness Weeks

Indigenous Awareness Weeks offer students, staff, and faculty the opportunity to learn about Indigenous cultures, histories, and communities, promoting greater knowledge and understanding about Indigenous peoples in Canada. They aim to raise awareness and initiate an exchange of ideas on First Nations, Métis, and Inuit topics within the McGill community.

Indigenous Awareness Weeks provide a space to amplify Indigenous voices and perspectives on campus. Since 2011, invited guests have included academics, community members, Elders, and students. Topics have included health, identity, language revitalization, the Indian Act, Residential Schools, Indigenous legal traditions, Canadian policies, education, child welfare, and Indigenous ways of knowing.

This year's series marks the 12th annual Indigenous Awareness Weeks at McGill. It will take place from Monday, September 18th to Friday, September 29th. All are welcome to attend the events, which are free.

Stay tuned for a detailed event schedule, poster, and more.
