People of all nations are invited to the inaugural Otsenhákta Student Centre Pow Wow, celebrating First Nations, Inuit and Métis students at Concordia, and 30 years of the Otsenhákta Student Centre.
Join us for a gathering of Indigenous cultures, each with their unique style of singing, dancing, and performances. Discover the way we celebrate together, share our knowledge, and create new bonds of friendship. Support Indigenous entrepreneurs by purchasing handmade crafts and natural handmade products.
Join us Friday, September 16, 2022 at the Loyola Campus Quad Space.
The closest washrooms are in the Vanier Library Building (VL). These washrooms are wheelchair-accessible but are not gender-neutral. There is a concrete step into the Quad on three sides. However, there is no step from the parking lot on the northwest side, making it wheelchair-accessible. There are trees, some roots and uneven ground on the Quad. There are three parking spots near the Quad that are accessible for attendees with reduced mobility. This event is child-friendly.
Who we are
The Otsenhákta Student Centre (OSC) is an on-campus resource for First Nations, Inuit and Métis students. Otsenhákta, IPA pronunciation od͡zʌ̃ˈhɑkdɑ (O-TSEN-HAK-TA), is a Kanien'kéha word meaning “near the fire.”
The mission of the OSC is to offer a warm place where Indigenous students can find community, support and assistance by creating inclusive and culturally rich spaces for students to study when away from home. We help students succeed and achieve their highest academic potential by working with them to make the most of the many resources available at the university.
