Mohawk breaks ground on new Indigenous Gathering Place

September 9, 2015

Mohawk College has begun construction on its new Indigenous Gathering Place. Located at the main campus, the new outdoor space will consist of four elements: an open-air pavilion, a fire circle, a water garden, and a traditional garden. With seating for more than 60 people, it is designed to be an ideal space for ceremonies, teaching, or studying. Mohawk expects the Gathering Place to be open next summer. The creation of the new outdoor space aligns with other recent initiatives, such as the Wampum Belt Wall, designed to strengthen relationships with the local Indigenous community and to welcome Indigenous students, staff, and faculty to the college. Mohawk (1) | Mohawk (2)
