Oki! Welcome to Sacred Buffalo Stone The University of Lethbridge is proud to be located in Treaty 7, in the heart of traditional Blackfoot Territory. Our Blackfoot name is Iniskim, meaning Sacred Buffalo Stone, and was gifted to the University by Elder Bruce Wolf Child in 2002. Since we opened our doors in 1967, First Nations culture has been woven into the fabric of the University, enriching programming, teaching and research, and creating a university where students find community, support and success. We take pride in offering FNMI-focused programs to all uLethbridge students including: Bachelor of Arts (Native American Studies) Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Education (Native Education) Bachelor of Fine Arts (Native American Art) Bachelor of Health Sciences
The Native American Students’ Association (NASA) is one of the longest-serving student clubs at uLethbridge. It is made up of primarily Aboriginal students, with a small group of non-indigenous members as well. Students interact with members from across Canada, including chiefs, business people, elders and more. We also have a Native American Students’ Association (NASA) Lounge where Aboriginal students hang out and socialize, meet other students or use the quiet study space. We offer a variety of services for FNMI students including: Ceremony/Smudge Room, Elders, Enrolment Advising, FNMI Mentors, FNMI Student Services and the Iikaisskini Gathering Place.
