Elder in Residence

This Student Housing & Residence Life program takes place in October and March. The program brings an Indigenous 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, Sunrise Ceremony, and teachings on “The Seven Grandfathers”. This is an opportunity to experience Indigenous knowledge in a more holistic cycle, as is done traditionally at events within the Indigenous cultures.
