Elder in Residence

This program, taking place in October and March, brings an Aboriginal Elder to Campus for a weekend to live in residence at UTM and engage with students both living on and off-campus. Events may include a Traditional Feast, Teaching circle, Healing Circle (dropping stress!), Sunrise Ceremony, and teachings on “The Seven Grandfathers”. This is an opportunity to experience Aboriginal knowledge in a more holistic cycle, as is done traditionally at events within the Aboriginal culture.
