Sharing the culture
Mi'gmaw Aboriginal Student Representative (Former Employee) –  Nova Scotia30 March 2016
I had the opportunity to represent all First Nations students that attended CBU. Having sat on the student union for 3 years was a learning experience. Teaching and sharing the knowledge and understanding of the First Nation student body that attend the University was a bit of a struggle, the ignorance was still there, at monthly meetings I would bring forward the concerns the FN students brought forward. Many of the concerns had been addressed and dealt with. Having host many cultures events within the University has also help the whole student body, also inviting the students and union reps to the Unama'ki College which is part of the University and meeting with the students openly, hosting treaty month and other important ceremonies that we have, many included singing/drumming and dancing in our traditional regalia and foods.
Pros
Acknowledge who we are as FN peoples and our ways of life.
Cons
The ignorance is still there.
