Are you a First Nations, Métis, or Inuit student?
In recognition and honouring the original nations and people of Turtle Island the University of Waterloo respects the wishes of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit graduands, who choose to wear traditional regalia to a convocation ceremony.
All First Nations, Métis and Inuit graduands, are welcome to wear traditional regalia in lieu of a convocation gown. You may also choose to wear your regalia under your gown. The choice is yours. Please complete the Indigenous Regalia Form below if you plan to wear traditional regalia.
By signaling your plans to wear your traditional regalia, it allows convocation organizers, and the Office of Indigenous Relations know you are attending and can adequately plan and communicate details with you.
The University of Waterloo respects, honours and welcomes your decision to wear your traditional regalia to this milestone ceremony.
