First Peoples’ Initiative


Student reps needed!
Contact Tiawenti:non Canadian if you would like to get involved.

The Dawson First Peoples’ Initiative is a group of faculty, staff, and students working to explore ways of indigenizing our college. The main goals of the initiative are to:

  • ensure that Dawson is responding to the interests, experiences, goals, and concerns of Indigenous students
  • bring Indigenous history, culture, knowledge, and issues to the forefront in all aspects of college life
  • maintain a First Peoples’ Centre
  • promote Indigenous Studies at Dawson

The FPI is a continually expanding group, open to any interested members of the college community. Please contact a member of the FPI Steering Committee for more information or if you would like to get involved:
