Indigenous Ways of Knowing

Portage College has been blessed with the word "wâhkôhtowin" in the spirit of collaboration and partnership with the First Nation and Métis people in our region. The Cree word reminds us of the Indigenous world view of the interconnected nature of relationships, communities, and natural systems.

We acknowledge that Portage College’s service region is on the traditional lands of First Nation Peoples, the owners of Treaty 6, 8 and 10, which are also homelands to the Métis people. We honour the history and culture of all people who first lived and gathered in these lands.
