National Aboriginal Day
Join us on June 21, 2017 from 8:30 – 9:15 am at the Gordon Oakes Red Bear Student Centre to celebrate National Aboriginal Day. Coffee and bannock will be served, and everyone is welcome.
Speakers include Elder Louise Halfe, Treaty Commissioner Harry Lafond, SUNTEP co-ordinator Sheila Pocha and U of S President Peter Stoicheff.
The U of S is also a sponsor of second annual Rock Your Roots Walk for Reconciliation that will take place starting in Victoria Park at 10 am. A small group will represent the university at the walk, with a bus leaving from the Gordon Oakes Red Bear Student Centre at 9:15 am and returning to campus at 11:20 am and 12:20 pm. There are limited seats, and you can register online. Please seek approval from your supervisor before agreeing to attend this event, and wear your U of S clothing to show your university pride.
