Indigenous Gathering Place

The Indigenous Gathering Place is located at New Westminster Campus (Room 4650).

Gathering Place

Opened in April 2011, the Indigenous Gathering Place is a venue for traditional ceremonies, Indigenous cultural events, Indigenous Student Services activities, and meetings. When not holding events, the Gathering Place is a quiet space to study, meditate and meet fellow students.

The main room features traditional art, including a four-metre Coast Salish welcoming figure that faces the Fraser River, by Susan Point, and four directional poles by George Hemeon.

The space is available to everyone at Ƶ and to the larger community to use respectfully. Priority is given to activities organized for Indigenous students, faculty and staff, as well as partner activities with the community and events and meetings that are in direct support of Indigenous initiatives and priorities at the College.
