Aaniin, Kwe kwe, Biindegek, Bonjour, Hello

The Nishnaabe-gkendaaswin Teg (the arbour) is a place of Indigenous knowledge which was unveiled in 2017. It is a gathering space of higher learning, within an Anishnaabe worldview. When the arbour is used for ceremony, appropriate protocols will be followed according to the cultural tradition of the person leading the ceremony. It may be used by various individuals or groups for ceremonies and occasions in line with the purpose of the space.

If you wish to use the arbour, please consult the following policy, procedures and associated rental fees:

Acknowledgement: Our institution is located in Sudbury, also known as N’Swakamok in Anishnabemowin, meaning “Where the three roads meet”. This land on which we learn, work and live is in the Robinson-Huron Treaty territory. We are located on the traditional lands of the Atikameksheng Anishnawbek and the Wahnapitae First Nations, and the University of Sudbury is proud of its relationship and long history with the Anishnaabeg. We would also like to recognize the presence and important contributions of MĂ©tis peoples in the community and on this land.
