Walking parallel paths, together, in a good way

The Office of Indigenous Engagement and ii' taa'poh'to'p guide UCalgary on its path of transformation, and communicate its commitment and responsibility for truth and reconciliation.

June: Indigenous History Month & Pride Month

National Indigenous History Month is commemorated every June, providing an opportunity to ignite truthful learning about Canada's history with Indigenous Peoples, spark meaningful conversations, and to celebrate First Nations, Inuit and Métis cultures. The University of Calgary is honoured to host Campfire Chats on June 21, Indigenous Peoples Day, along with many other National Indigenous History Month events throughout June, found here

Around the world, June is also annually dedicated to Pride Month. Pride Month is a time when 2SLGBTQI+ communities and allies come together to celebrate two-spirit, lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender pride in oneself and identity.

June is a month filled with opportunity to recognizes these resilient communities and to celebrate our diverse identities. The Office of Indigenous Engagement encourages the UCalgary community to continue to learn about Indigenous and 2SLGBTQI+ histories, and enact transformation within ourselves individually, our units and our institution. We hope that the space created in June will generate waves of change throughout the year.

"Let us move forward with promise, hope and caring for the sake of those children not yet born, seven generations into the future."
