ii’ taa’poh’to’p INDIGENOUS STRATEGY (UofC)


What is it?

The ii'taa'poh'to'p Indigenous Strategy was created and launched by the Office of Indigenous Engagement and the University of Calgary.

Statement of Purpose:
The Indigenous Strategy will guide the University of Calgary on its path of transformation and communicate its commitment and responsibility for truth and reconciliation. The strategy will remain a living document within the institution, whereby progress will be monitored and content and direction will be renewed through a process of evaluation and evolution.

Who is it for?

All University of Calgary staff and students.  

What can it do?

Statement of Committments:

In line with the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action, and through the development and adoption of an Indigenous Strategy, the University of Calgary commits to:

  1. The process of reconciliation, which entails a collective journey that honours Indigenous peoples’ stories, knowledges, and traditions and the renewal and development of authentic relationships with Indigenous peoples and communities;
  2. Establishing a welcoming, inclusive, and culturally competent campus community that respects, includes, and promotes Indigenous ways of knowing, teaching, learning, and research;
  3. Creating and maintaining shared, ethical space inclusive of Indigenous peoples’ representation within the student body, staff, faculty, leadership, and governing structures;
  4. Developing a campus community that understands the histories and worldviews of Indigenous peoples and the importance of connection to land;
  5. Ensuring policies, practices and procedures are supportive and respectful of Indigenous ways of doing;
  6. Creating space and processes for ongoing ‘full circle’ community engagement through dialogue with Indigenous communities and other institutional stakeholders; and
  7. Ensuring sustainability and renewal of the Indigenous Strategy so it remains a current and dynamic agent for transformation for the university.
