47th Elders and Traditional Gathering
Elders and Traditional Peoples Gathering
The Elders & Traditional Peoples Gathering is an important annual event that connects students, community members and Elders, and is hosted by the First Peoples House of Learning and the Chanie Wenjack School for Indigenous Studies at Trent University. First held at Trent in the 1970's, it was the biggest event of its kind. Centered around a yearly theme, the gathering provides an opportunity to share Indigenous knowledge through a series of workshops, keynote addresses, and gatherings. It is a time for students and the community to come together to listen, learn, and engage with the stories and knowledge that Elders and Traditional People carry. The 2023 Elders and Traditional Peoples Gathering will focus on renewing connections to community, to culture and to traditions for all Indigenous Peoples on Turtle Island.
All are welcome to join us in person or virtually. Please visit trentu.ca/eldersgathering for details and to register.
