Indigenous Education at Trent

Enweying: The Way We Speak Together

At Trent, you will thrive and benefit from an academic and supportive environment where Indigenous knowledge is respected and recognized as a valid means by which to understand the world.

  • Learn from Indigenous and non-Indigenous faculty members, and interact with Elders and Traditional Teachers
  • Spend a semester studying abroad in one of Trent’s 40 partner countries
  • Engage in research projects that make a difference in your community
  • Experience cross-cultural learning, blending Indigenous and Western knowledge and approaches

The concept of understanding the world in multiple ways is deeply embedded in various Indigenous communities. Haudenosaunee people describe this concept in their two row wampum teachings, Maliseet people refer to this as “two eyed seeing” and Dene people refer to this concept as “strong like two.”
