Indigenous Students Initiatives

The Dawson Student Union conducts its activities on land, the unceded traditional territory of the Kanien’kehá:ka (gah-nyen–geh-hah-gah). This land has also served as a gathering place for Abenaki, Anishinaabe and other nations. We recognize and respect the Kanien’kehá:ka as the traditional custodians of the lands and waters we meet today. Tiohtià:ke/Montréal is home to a diverse Indigenous population. The Dawson Student Union respects the continued connections with the past, present and future in our ongoing relationships with Indigenous peoples within the Montréal community and other communities across Canada.
