Indigenous Portfolio

Aaniin, Kwe kwe, Biindegek, Bonjour, Hello

Welcome to the University of Sudbury Indigenous Portfolio page!

The University of Sudbury defines itself by its bilingual and tri-cultural tradition, its Jesuit heritage and its long-standing dedication to promoting the culture and traditions of Indigenous peoples. In May 2018, in order to expand on these efforts, we created the new position of Director of our Indigenous Portfolio, which Loretta Nootchtai currently occupies. See below to find out more about the range of services and activities offered under this portfolio.

Acknowledgement: Our institution is located in Sudbury, also known as N’Swakamok in Anishnabemowin, meaning “Where the three roads meet”. This land on which we learn, work and live is in the Robinson-Huron Treaty territory. We are located on the traditional lands of the Atikameksheng Anishnawbek and the Wahnapitae First Nation, and the University of Sudbury is proud of its relationship and long history with the Anishnaabeg. We would also like to recognize the presence and important contributions of Métis peoples in the community and on this land.
