Indigenous Self-Identification

September 02, 2021

​​Knowing who you are and where you come from is an essential aspect within an Indigenous worldview. Knowing your identity can lead to an increased positive self-image.

By self-identifying as an Indigenous student you may have access to a wide variety of academic, cultural, and social/emotional supports, programs, and activities (see examples below). By acknowledging your Indigenous ancestry, you can help contribute to the provision of high-quality learning opportunities that are responsive, flexible, and accessible to Indigenous students and contribute to strategic goals, strategies, and policies set up by the Indigenous Advisory Council.
