Visiting Elders & Traditional Knowledge Holders in Residence

Throughout the school year, we are honored with the presence of visiting Elders and Traditional Knowledge holders. Visitors spend four days at Peterborough and one day at the Oshawa Durham campus, interacting with students sharing their knowledge and teachings. Students are invited to make on-on-one appointments, visit at the Traditional Area or come to the Traditional Teaching facilitated by our visiting Elder or Knowledge Holder. Traditional Teachings are typically offered in the Ernest and Florence Benedict Gathering Space (GSC 102), Thursday evenings from 6:00pm to 8:00pm. Elders and Knowledge Holders also present a variety of lectures across Trent University. 

All of our visiting Elders and Traditional Knowledge Holders will be posted in the calendar of events section of our website.

You can also follow FPHL on Facebook for up to date information.

To book a one-on-one appointment with a visiting Elder or Knowledge Holder, please contact our Cultural Advisor/Indigenous Counsellor, Betty Carr-Braint.
