Dal permanently raises Mi’kmaq flag

October 19, 2016

“We recognize that Dalhousie is located on traditional territory of the Mi’kmaq people,” said Dalhousie University President Richard Florizone to mark the permanent raising of the Mi’kmaq Grand Council Flag on Dal’s Studley and Sexton campuses this month. The flag installations mark one of several initiatives underway at Dal, which include the addition of the Aboriginal Student Advisor position, the newly launched Aboriginal Student Centre, the Indigenous Studies Minor, and the Elders-in-Residence program. Mi’kmaq Grand Keptin Antle (Andrew) Denny said, “It is important as we move forward through our shared history that we are able to look at each other, talk to each other, laugh with each other.” Chronicle Herald | Dal
