Durham Campus Spaces
Endaayang (Our Home) Traditional Area - Tipi
The Endaayang (Our Home) Traditional Area features the Tipi, where FPHL holds social fires and ceremonies with the help of our fire keepers. The Tipi sits on gravel terrain, which is surrounded by cement that is accessible from the sidewalk. Our Tipi is also accessible for wheelchairs, and we would be happy to accommodate for any other accessibility needs, just let us know! This area is located behind Building A, near the back parking lot.
Indigenous Student Lounge
The Indigenous Student Lounge is located in the back of Building A, through the general student lounge. This sacred space is intended exclusively for Indigenous, First Nation, Métis, and Inuit students and their guests to promote their comfort, safety, and support on campus. Equipped with our traditional medicines, a fan that allows for smudging in the room, school supplies, Indigenous books, a food bank, comfortable furniture, and more, this space is a great place to take a break or enjoy some quiet studying. Feel free to take any school and food supplies as needed! The large window in the space provides a beautiful view of our traditional area, with the Tipi just a few steps away.
We also have a beautiful display case in the hallway of Building A, just across from the library. Here you can find educational visual displays of various Indigenous identities and experiences in Canada.
