The Department of First Nations Studies partners with Indigenous and other communities and individuals to build dynamic relationships that restore and revitalize traditional knowledges, ancient and modern aesthetics, and literatures.

As a community of learners, we connect and honour academic rigor and Indigenous perspectives through activist research, creative production, and community engagement.

First Nations Studies offers sequential, comprehensive learning rooted in traditional and contemporary Aboriginal logic, methodology, practice and theory.
