National Indigenous Peoples Day

Assumption University respectfully acknowledges that we reside on the traditional lands of the Three Fires Confederacy comprised of the Ojibwa, Odawa, and the Potawatomie. Today is National Indigenous Peoples Day. Assumption University encourages individuals across the Land to join with us as we take time today to learn about First Nations, Métis, and Inuit history, culture, and language. To help with this ongoing learning process, we have included links for your reflection.
