Why participate in Indigenous Initiatives trainings?

Indigenous Initiatives trainings and workshops are encouraged for all University of Waterloo campus community members. Our workshops are attended by self-identifying First Nations, Métis, and Inuit peoples, along with settlers. Together, they engage with and think critically
about workshop content.

Human Rights, Equity and Inclusion creates spaces and opportunities for the campus community to support and take action to advance reconciliation. Many of our trainings and workshops aim to provide essential insights into the historical and ongoing processes and impacts of colonization, Indigenous histories, including treaty rights, and the impact of Indian residential schools.
