Hello! N'it! Wachiya! Ahnee! Tansi! She:kon! Kwe!

Gdoo-maawnjidimi Mompii Indigenous Student Services offers culturally supportive programs and initiatives to First Nations, Inuit and Métis students at TMU, ensuring access to specialized services that strike a balance between academic excellence and traditional teachings and culture.

Our name Gdoo-maawnjidimi Mompii means “We Gather Here”, representing how the team brings together support services, programs and the Indigenous Student Centre under one roof in service of Indigenous students.

The university strives to foster positive relationships with the Indigenous community through the work of the Indigenous Education Council (IEC), Indigenous Student Services, and Indigenous Initiatives within the Office of the Vice-President, Equity and Community Inclusion (OVPECI).

Toronto Metropolitan University is located in Toronto. Toronto is in the “Dish With One Spoon Territory”

The Dish With One Spoon is a treaty between the Anishinaabe, Mississaugas and Haudenosaunee that bound them to share the territory and protect the land. Subsequent Indigenous Nations and Peoples, Europeans and all newcomers have been invited into this treaty in the spirit of peace, friendship and respect.
