Indigenous Awareness Weeks celebrates First Nations, Inuit and Métis excellence – McGill Reporter

September 14, 2023

IAW 2023 features everything from film screenings, and a workshop on harvesting rabbit and making fish skin jewelry, to the Legacy lacrosse game and the ever-popular Pow Wow

McGill will host the 12th annual Indigenous Awareness Weeks (IAW) from September 18 to 30. Organizers hope the two-week celebration will encourage a greater understanding of Indigenous peoples among students, staff, and faculty at McGill.

“IAW is a great opportunity for the McGill community to learn about Indigenous perspectives, to listen to Indigenous voices, and to connect with Indigenous people here at the University – be they students, staff, or academics,” says Celeste Pedri-Spade, Associate Provost (Indigenous Initiatives).

“IAW is a celebration of First Nations, Inuit and Métis excellence, and a time for Indigenous peoples to come together to share our perspectives and knowledges on topics and issues that impact us. It’s also an opportunity for non-Indigenous people to learn directly from us, honoring our relational ways of learning and sharing.”
