Cultural Spaces

All campus locations have cultural spaces used for gathering, celebrating, healing and sharing. In additional to canvas tipis at each campus, our Timmins Campus is home to Mamawi Kee Kee Nao, a unique permanent tipi where cultural events are hosted throughout the year. The tipi can also be used to meet with the Elder, smudge and be together.
