Are you interested in a student-run group? In previous years, the First Peoples Council (FPC) was created by a group of students, who had “Clubs and Societies” status with Carleton University Student Association (CUSA).

As a recognized Club and Society, the FPC received funds from CUSA to organize special events promoting Indigenous culture on campus.  Some of the FPC’s past events include a “I am Indigenous” photo gallery, “Two Voices One Memory: The Residential School Legacy”, visits from Elders and other guest speakers, trips to Pow Wows, fundraisers (such as bake sales and prize bingo), Spring Carnival, etc.

For guidance on establishing Clubs and Societies status with CUSA, contact us or Mawandoseg Centre (CUSA Service Centre).
