Global visitors enjoy a taste of Ojibwe culture

Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College welcomed Indigenous-serving educators from across the world over the past week, hosting the annual gathering of the World Indigenous Nations Higher Education Consortium.

Guests and local residents danced together at a drum and dance exhibition Saturday, and the fun continued Monday with canoe races and Baaga'adowewin (traditional stick lacrosse) on Tuesday. In addition to bringing people together, the free events helped illustrate the significance of the Fond du Lac Reservation and Ojibwe culture.

FDLTCC has been a member of the consortium - which focuses primarily on Indigenous education and the educational rights of Indigenous people - since 2017.
