Aaniin! Hello!

Health faculty, staff and students are invited to attend a ceremony to formally welcome Elder Myeengun Henry as the Faculty of Health Indigenous Knowledge Keeper and commemorate a new relationship of reconciliation in work throughout the Faculty.

Elder Myeengun Henry
A tree will be planted in the B.C. Matthews Hall (BMH) courtyard to symbolize our Strategic Plan signature commitment – To foster an environment that invites and respects Indigenous ways of knowing – and a Wampum Belt will be presented.

Our signature commitment is one of several initiatives the Faculty will be undertaking in response to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada findings and calls to actions. Light refreshments will be served in the Expansion building after the ceremony.
