Faculty of Arts & Science
Centre for Indigenous Studies
The Centre for Indigenous Studies provides a vibrant academic forum for the cross-disciplinary study of the languages, cultures, histories, knowledge and well-being of Indigenous peoples within Canada and around the world. In partnership with First Nations House and with strong university-community alliances, our highly accomplished faculty offer new perspectives and a deepening understanding of the important contributions of Indigenous peoples. Indigenous and non-Indigenous students discover an environment where they can realize their intellectual and professional goals and be inspired to give back to their communities. Your generosity helps to grow our research and educational capacity, support student research, send students on research and conference trips, develop our language revitalization initiatives, strengthen vital community-university partnerships, and position us as an international centre of excellence in Indigenous Studies.
