Indigenous Achievement Week

Feb. 3 – 7, 2020

Everyone is welcome.

Indigenous Achievement Week (IAW) is an annual event that celebrates the successes and contributions of Métis, First Nations and Inuit students, staff, faculty and alumni within the context of this year's theme: Indigenous Knowledge Systems. Each year the theme is chosen by Indigenous students from across USask.  

IAW begins with a pipe ceremony and feast Monday, February 3 and finishes with a round dance cellebration Friday, February 7 in the Education Gymnasium. Throughout the week there will also be various events hosted by USask units and colleges.

One of the highlights of the week is always the Indigenous Student Achievement Awards Ceremony. Indigenous students will be honoured for their academic, leadership and community outreach accomplishments. The awards ceremony will take place Thursday, February 6 in the Gordon Oakes Red Bear Student Centre.
