Dal moves Indigenous Student Centre to larger space

June 7, 2017

Dalhousie University has announced that it will grow the size and capacity of its Indigenous Student Centre to increase the number of visitors and “virtually eliminate any barriers to performing sacred smudging ceremonies.” In an email to the entire campus community, Dal said that its existing Aboriginal Student Centre has been renamed the Indigenous Student Centre and that its location will be moved to a larger space with proper ventilation for smudging. “I'm feeling quite positive for the new space,” said Aaron Prosper, the co-president of the Dalhousie Indigenous Students’ Collective, who added that smudging is “a fundamental thing within all of our different ceremonies and traditions.” The new Indigenous Student Centre will also feature a library and outdoor area.
