Enriching our spaces
Enrich the UBC campus landscape with a stronger Indigenous presence.
Engage with Musqueam, the Okanagan Nation and other Indigenous host nations, as appropriate, regarding the design and development of UBC facilities.
Establish a cultural expert program that brings Musqueam, Okanagan Nation and other interested nations’ cultural experts and Indigenous knowledge holders to the UBC campuses to work, teach and promote their expertise
Dedicate spaces for Indigenous students, faculty and staff to practice and celebrate their cultures.
Identify and make visible the generational connections of Indigenous peoples to culturally significant places across UBC campuses
Implement an Indigenous procurement strategy which prioritizes the provision of goods and services from Indigenous businesses and vendors.
Students need to see modern Indigenous people in an academic setting. They need to view Indigenous people as people in the here and now who hold knowledge and power.”
