Social Gatherings

Let's Connect!

Connecting and spending time together is so important! On this page you will find opportunities to get together with folks from the UWaterloo Indigenous campus community. These are safe spaces where we can celebrate one another, strengthen bonds, and just feel all filled up! We look forward to seeing you. Thank you for sharing time together.

If you have a social gathering for the UWaterloo Indigenous community that you would like us to share here, please email

Poster for Beaders n' Eaters social gathering

Beaders n' Eaters!

For University of Waterloo, First Nations, Metis, and Inuit staff, faculty, students, alumni and retirees.

Work on those deadly crafting skills during "Beaders n' Eaters." Some food will be provided, but we welcome you to bring an item to share. We have dishes and utensils. Bring your favourite craft supplies and spend time chatting away while engaged in creativity. This is also a great place to learn! If you have an interest in beading and want to start, we have folks with experience who can share their gifts. If you have skills you want to show off, the more teachers the merrier! Not into beading, but still want to hang out? Stoodis! We are looking forward to many evenings full of laughter that sends your head flying backwards!

Location: EC5 4201 (Office of Indigenous Relations)
