The tipi on the Augustana campus is meant to be a welcoming space that provides a traditional space for students, faculty, staff and community members. It is a place that holds spiritual and cultural value and can provide a venue for traditional ceremonies and private and group retreats.
The Aboriginal Engagement Committee finalized Tipi Use Guidelines (PDF) for the tipi in March 2016. These guidelines should be followed by anyone intending to use the tipi for an event, or just as a place to relax and enjoy.
The tipi can be booked by Augustana employees through Rom. Off-campus user inquiries should be made to the Aboriginal Students Office by calling 780-679-1562 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
