Humber College presented students who self-identify as Indigenous with Indigenous medallions to wear during the Fall 2022 Convocation.

The college first gave them out during Spring 2022 Convocation as a way for the students to display pride in their history and culture and to also acknowledge the graduates’ accomplishments.

The medallions also speak to the importance of the tradition of gift giving to Indigenous peoples. The medallions were made by Mikmaw artists Born in the North. The lanyard was made by MĂ©tis artist Beaded Bear.
