We welcome all students and staff who are interested in learning about Indigenous Peoples.
Indigenous Education & Engagement works in partnership with regional Indigenous communities to ensure Indigenous students are supported and connected to their learning environment- academically, culturally and socially.
We assist Indigenous students in making the transition and adjustment to the challenges of college life while creating an awareness and appreciation of Indigenous culture and history in the greater campus community.
We want to welcome you to the traditional lands that Humber College is located on. We do this to honour and respect the ancestors who lived on this land before us and currently still reside in this area. Humber invites you to join us in recognizing the living history of the land on which we are located and honour our connection to it.
- Jason Seright, Vice President, Inclusion & Belonging
Humber College is located within the traditional and treaty lands of the Mississaugas of the Credit. Known as Adoobiigok, the “Place of the Alders” in Michi Saagiig language, the region is uniquely situated along Humber River watershed, which historically provided an integral connection for Anishinaabe, Haudenosaunee, and Wendat peoples between the Ontario Lakeshore and the Lake Simcoe/Georgian Bay regions. Now home to people of numerous nations, Adoobiigok continues to provide a vital source of interconnection for all.
Humber's campuses are enriched with cultural markers that acknowledge the orgininal inhabitants of Adoobiigok. Visit the Cultural Marker Page to take a virtual tour.
