The Tipi Raising Competition was initiated by the late Cultural & Traditional Advisor Glen Anaquod, from the Muscowpetung First Nation. The competition emphasizes the importance of the tipi, culturally and educationally, all the while building the spirit of teamwork.

The competition is open to the university community, high school students, and the general public. Teams of four compete in four categories (High School, Women, Campus & Community). Competitors include university and high school students (grade 9 and up), university employees, and community members.


High School: 4 High school students; 2 females and 2 males

Women: 4 females

Campus: At least one university student; 2 females and 2 males

Community: 2 females and 2 males

All competitors must be high school students or older.

Registration is free

Everyone welcome to register (grade 9 and up)

Free lunch provided for competitors

Tipis and supplies are provided

Registration will close once all spots are filled.

The event provides a fun, friendly, and engaging environment for hands on learning about Indigenous culture and values. Celebrating the innovative structure of the tipi, we also explore what the tipi has to teach us in terms of our values; such as tending to our homes and families, the importance of teamwork, listening and observation, styles of leadership, and our ability to persevere in the face of obstacles.



Aboriginal Student Centre

The ASC cultivates a respectful and welcoming atmosphere that encourages student empowerment, identity, community connection and Indigenous ways of learning. The ASC acts as a central hub for all students on campus, faculty, staff and community to gather and find a sense of belonging in the larger university environment.

The Aboriginal Student Centre's main focus is on assisting Indigenous students':

Successful transition into University

Retention at the post-secondary level

Participation at University events and

Successful completion of University

Transition into the workforce

While the Centre’s focus is for students, all of the campus community is welcome in the Centre, as creating opportunities for intercultural and intergenerational exchange strengthens our campus community, and allows us to achieve the greatest heights in education and learning.
