The rock is here – it is the University of Lethbridge.


Anyone who comes to study here can be wise and solid like the rock. The University of Lethbridge is located in the heart of traditional Blackfoot territory. Since the U of L first opened

its doors in 1967, First Nations culture has been weaved into the fabric of the university, enriching programming, teaching and research, and creating a university experience where students find community, support and success.

The Story of Medicine Rock In 2002, Blackfoot Elder Bruce Wolf Child bestowed the name Nato’ohkotok, meaning Medicine Rock, upon the University of Lethbridge. The story of Medicine Rock is a traditional Blackfoot narrative of a rock that appeared as an old man to a young boy but disappeared. In honouring the University, Wolf Child said, “Now we know where the rock has gone. It has moved across the river. The rock is here – it is the University of Lethbridge. Anyone who comes to study here can be wise and solid like the rock.”

Traditional Blackfoot territory extended from the North Saskatchewan River to the Yellowstone River in what is now southern Montana. The Rocky Mountains formed the western border while the eastern boundary extended southward from the confluence of the North and South Saskatchewan Rivers. 71


Welcome to the University of Lethbridge Dear Students, I was honoured to be inducted into the Kainai Chieftainship and bestowed the Blackfoot name Iipisowahsi, or Morning Star, meaning son of the sun and the moon. When Blackfoot Elder Dr. Pete Standing Alone (LLD ‘12) gave me my name, he said the sun is the father and the moon is the mother. Therefore, when they are praying, they often refer to the morning star as their brother. This is very symbolic and reflects the relationship the University of Lethbridge has with the Blackfoot people. The University of Lethbridge resides on traditional Blackfoot territory and has a long-standing commitment to create an inclusive university for all First Nations, MĂŠtis and Inuit (FNMI) peoples. When the U of L was founded in 1967, we initiated a mandate to support FNMI students, faculty and research. This core value remains at the centre of the University of Lethbridge today. We are committed to ensuring you have the opportunities and support necessary to reach your personal and educational goals. I invite you to visit our campus, meet with faculty and staff, and learn more about the University of Lethbridge, our programming and the unique experience you will have here. Sincerely,

Mike Mahon, PhD President and Vice-Chancellor

Oki, Welcome to Traditional Blackfoot Country Like the tree, the roots of First Nations’, Métis and Inuit peoples go deep into the history, body and blood of this land. Our ancestors form the base of this tree, the trunk, from which we, their descendants, can build and branch out because of the foundation they laid out for us. Your university path will be filled with many challenges and many triumphs as your body and mind grow and develop, but know that the spirits of your ancestors will lift you up along your way. You are standing on their shoulders so that you can reach the sky. Do not stop. Be steady and move forward on your path. If you do, you are honouring your ancestors who gave you life. You can be solid and wise like the rock, but you first must be brave like the warrior. I believe you can do it. Do you? Only you can make this decision. I look forward to joining the many spirits who will be singing an honour song for you on your graduation day. Sincerely, Leroy Little Bear (BASc ’72, LLD ’04) Special Assistant to the President

Education Native Education In partnership with the Department of Native American Studies, the Faculty of Education offers a comprehensive combined BA/BEd or After Degree program in Native Education. Courses in this major are taught from a Native perspective and students are encouraged to integrate that perspective into all components of their studies. One of the cornerstones of the nationally recognized teacher preparation program is the 27-week field experience internship.

12

The Faculty has a peer support system for Aboriginal students and a lounge, Itaohkanao’pi – The Meeting Place. Students also have access to a designated Faculty member advisor in the area.

Learn in a collaborative environment The Faculty of Education actively collaborates with FNMI communities to develop programs responsive to their needs. In 2004 the Faculty offered the Niitsitapi Teacher Education Program. Created in collaboration with Red Crow Community College, Niitsitapi incorporated Blackfoot culture, traditions and knowledge as foundational components in the program.

In 2008 the Faculty offered a Master’s degree in FNMI Curriculum, developed once again in collaboration with Red Crow Community College. Elders played an essential role in course development and delivery in both programs. Students from all FNMI cultures are welcome and encouraged to apply for admission.

Health Sciences Support Services for Aboriginal Students in Health Sciences (SSASHS) The Faculty of Health Sciences acknowledges the healing traditions of First Nations, Métis and Inuit (FNMI) communities in preparing students for health-care careers. FNMI people have a long tradition of caring for the ill and helping people stay well, yet the shortage of health-care professionals is particularly evident in rural and FNMI communities across Canada. Increasing the number of FNMI health-care professionals is crucial to enhancing the capacity of communities and in positively influencing their health status. The Faculty of Health Sciences’ commitment to

16

FNMI students remains a central feature of its programming, and the Faculty strives to maintain relationships that are positive, mutually respectful, culturally appropriate and productive. The one-year Health Sciences stream of the First Nations’ Transition Program prepares students for entry into the Health Sciences baccalaureate programs: • Nursing • Addictions Counselling • Public Health Students take courses in mathematics, chemistry, biology, health science, writing, computers and information literacy.

We can help you access: • Elders • Advisors • Tutors • Mentors • Scholarships, bursaries and funding opportunities • Personal support and counselling The goal of SSASHS is to support students by improving cultural sensitivity and cross-cultural education both on campus and in the community.
