The Social Equity and Diversity Education Office’s Indigenous Education Program is pleased to announce the 3rd annual Indigenous Awareness Week, from September 23rd to the 27th 2013. The week offers an opportunity to discover and learn about Indigenous peoples in Canada. This year, we are honoured to have Michèle Audette, president of the Native Women’s Association of Canada, who will be opening the week with a presentation on contemporary issues and challenges faced by Indigenous women living on and off-reserve.
McGill University’s Indigenous Awareness Week is designed to increase awareness at McGill about Indigenous peoples in Canada. The week honours the many Indigenous cultures across the country including the Métis, the Inuit and First Nations. The week also offers an opportunity to collaborate with community partners and draws active participation from McGill students, faculty and staff.
…SEDE’s Indigenous Educational Program seeks to develop a broad-based educational campaign by providing Aboriginal-specific programming and opportunities for bridge-building among diverse members of the McGill community.
