Maadaadizi 2017

ACSS in conjunction with Confederation College, Eabametoong First Nation, Fort William First Nation, Matawa Education, Northern Nishnawbe Education Council, Oshki-Pimache-O-Win, and 7 Generations Education Institute have again planned and organized Maadaadizi 2017 which means he/she starts a journey in the Ojibwe language. It’s our joint post-secondary Aboriginal Student Orientation being held at Marina Park on Saturday, September 9, 2017 from 2:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. 

We have set aside this special day to welcome post-secondary Aboriginal students and their families to their respective institutions and to the City of Thunder Bay. Ted Nolan is our Keynote Speaker and the day will include musical performances by Crystal Shawanda and Nick Sherman. Information booths by various organizations will be set-up, children’s activities, prizes and refreshments will be available.

This event is free and everyone is welcome to attend. We hope to see you there, rain or shine!
