2016 Indigenous Education Week at UofT

The 2016 Indigenous Education Week at the University of Toronto will be held from February 22nd to the 26th. Indigenous Education Week is a series of events for students, staff, faculty, and the community to participate in and learn about Indigenous knowledges, nationhood, and the diversity of Indigenous nations. Our broad theme for 2016 is Land and Pedagogy. As Indigenous peoples, our relationship to the land is paramount and is connected to knowledge, health, spirituality, and nationhood.
