for our event on Sunday, July 24, as we gather to honour and explore Canada's indigenous heritage at Algonquin College. Guests will hear from an indigenous chief, be wowed by the talents of indigenous performances including hand drum singing, traditional drummers, and will enjoy exceptional charcuterie-served indigenous food. Stroll down "Indigenous Alley" where you can purchase unique handicrafts from some local indigenous artisans and attend a medicine bag making demonstration. Don't forget to check out the silent auction to bid on some amazing items.
Algonquin College takes pride in its commitment to making Indigenous knowledge and traditions an integral part of the institution’s culture. Nawapon, an Algonquin word that translates as “gathering strength for the journey,” is the new name for the Indigenous Learning Commons. Nawapon serves as a gathering place for the College community, as well as a place where we will be hosting this amazing fundraiser.
