Indigenous Services for Students felt that one day in June wasn’t enough to honour and celebrate the richness and diversity of Indigenous cultures, so we'll be planning various events ranging from cultural activities, presentation, film screenings and more that highlight Indigenous excellence, pride, resilience and connection to the community.

- The Witness Blanket
- Inspired to know more about his father’s time at Residential School, artist Cary Newman created the Witness Blanket – a national monument that commemorates the experiences of residential school survivors. Narrated by the artist, this film weaves together these stories with his personal journey, examining how art can open our hearts to the pain of truth and the beauty of resiliency.
