Thompson Rivers University

Indigenous Awareness Week

Indigenous Awareness Week honours our first house Tk’emlups te Secwépemc and provides the TRU community opportunities to learn about Indigenous people, cultures, histories and stories of the local Secwépemc people and other Indigenous nations.

It is a week that has a lot of fun and interactive events and encourages a greater understanding of Indigenous peoples, as well as provides learning opportunities about First Nations, Métis and Inuit topics.

These events create a space for diverse Indigenous voices and perspectives. We are hosting some of these events in partnership with Tk’emlups te Secwépemc, Elders, local Indigenous community members, students and colleagues from across the university.

All events are free. Some events may have limited space. No pre-registration is necessary.
