Aboriginal Students' Office

Celebrations & Gatherings

To help foster and connect the Aboriginal community on campus, the ASO provides various opportunities throughout the year for students to gather, or to learn and participate in Aboriginal culture and traditions.

Past events include game nights, bannock taco lunches, cultural workshops, visits from Elders, guest speakers, dance performances, moccasin making classes, and road-trips to the U of A’s annual Round Dance in Edmonton.

Come back soon to see a listing of events for 2017 - 2018! At any time, contact the ASO to find out what's happening soon!
