Nishnaabe-gkendaaswin Teg Indigenous Arbour

The Nishnaabe-gkendaaswin Teg, meaning “Where Indigenous Knowledge Is” was unveiled in September 2017.

This sacred space serves as a place to sit with ancestors, seek the wisdom of Elders, receive teachings, explore one’s place within Creation and share in peace, understanding and thoughtful contemplation.

It is used significantly, by the students and faculty of the University of Sudbury, as well as those of the Laurentian Federation and by the community at large, for other such ceremonies and occasions in line with the purpose of the space.

If you wish to use the Arbour, please consult this page for policy of usage and associated rental fees.
