The Journey

Represents ”the ceremonial leader or holy person.” The symbol reflects that our transformation is a progressive and evolutionary journey, guided by Traditional Knowledge Keepers, and validated through ceremony.

Foundations of Transformation

Transformation begins with ensuring that Indigenous faculty, staff and students see themselves reflected on campus. Changing negative attitudes, values and beliefs about Indigenous peoples is a starting point that will lead to changes in how people interact, increasing the quality of relationships for all who are connected to UCalgary.

We commit to a collective journey that honours Indigenous peoples’ stories and traditions, and the renewal and development of authentic relationships with Indigenous peoples and communities.
