Endahying Living Learning Community
We respectfully acknowledge that we are on the treaty and traditional territory of the Michi Saagiig Anishinaabeg. We offer our gratitude to the First Peoples for their care for, and teachings about, our earth and our relations. May we honour those teachings.
Meaning “Our Home,” the Endahying Community provides a space for students to grow through shared experiences, storytelling and exploration of Indigenous knowledge and understanding. Students who have an interest in Indigenous culture and knowledge, identify as being Indigenous and/or are enrolled in the Chanie Wenjack School for Indigenous Studies, are encouraged to consider this community their home.
