After celebrating its grand opening in early 2016, the Wahkokohtowin Lodge (Wahkohtowin coming from the Plains Cree concept meaning kinship) is one of the most newly renovated spaces on campus.
The Wahkohtowin Lodge was created so that students from First Nations near and far would have a chance to meet others who share similar backgrounds and histories. At the same time, the Lodge provides opportunities for all of its visitors to interact with various Indigenous cultures. In its prominent location and fluid design, the Wahkohtowin Lodge is meant to draw in visitors so that they may meet and connect in a beautiful, comfortable and welcoming setting.
The Lodge’s central campus setting, comfortable and flexible seating arrangements, and engaging aesthetic make this space ideal for meetings, mingling, receptions and more.
