    A College Built for Canadian Settlers Envisions an Indigenous Future

    Excerpt:

    Even Peter Stoicheff, the university’s president, recognizes the challenges.

    “Universities are so inherently white and Western, when you start to push against it, you realized how intractable a lot of that is,” Mr. Stoicheff said.

    “Everything is based on reading stuff,” he explained. “Everything is laid out in a hierarchical and linear fashion. Look at the aboriginal ways, from visual expression to the wampum belt, dances and oral storytelling. It’s not linear. Everything is based on the circle.”

    I'm a 3-time grad of a College that takes First Nations issues seriously - has a high degree of enrolment - and is a hell of a good learning opportunity for both Indigenous people and others.
    Here's our Wampum Belt; I pass by it most days: https://www.mohawkcollege.ca/indigen...ts/wampum-belt As I said, we're serious about learning.

    A Mohawk inscription from my school, near the Hoop Dance Gathering Place:
    Éhtho niiohtónha'k ne onkwa'nikón:ra. - So now, we bring our minds together, as one.
