Indigenous Circle at AUSU

Tansi, edlanet’e?

Meet the Indigenous Circle at AUSU!

The Circle provides an Indigenous voice with two main goals. First, to represent the needs of Indigenous students at AU and, second, to guide AUSU as they address the Calls to Action from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, particularly education-based calls #6-12 and #62-65. The Circle is committed to carrying the spirit of Indigenous people’s strength, resilience, and customs into colonial spaces as they work in collaboration with the Students’ Union.
