Time for a First Nations university, says ON Regional Chief

May 22, 2018

“It’s time” for the Government of Ontario to seriously consider introducing a full, First Nations-led university, says Ontario Regional Chief Isadore Day. “We're now at an impasse, I believe, where all of what mainstream universities can offer our First Nations has pretty much run its course,” Day explained. “We have seen issues of racism, discrimination and systemic barriers that I believe will continue to occur because the foundation of mainstream education is not founded in Indigenous value systems and worldviews.” Day pointed to First Nations University in Saskatchewan as an example of what he would like to see in the province.
