International Indigenous Student Exchange Program

York University launched the International Indigenous Student Exchange Program (virtual pilot) providing opportunities for cross-cultural dialogues and collaboration between Indigenous students at York and their peers in Costa Rica, Ecuador, Mexico and the Philippines. Through a series of facilitated workshops over eight weeks, students expanded their knowledge of Indigenous histories, languages and cultures, the land, and spirituality in a safe and inclusive virtual environment. A Knowledge Fair (public) was organized to showcase culminating projects of the students addressing knowledge gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities.
