The Kinàmàgawin Symposium addresses timely topics—chosen by students—relevant to Indigenous peoples and serves to empower students, staff and faculty at Carleton to further their own knowledge and become a positive force for change.

The name Kinàmàgawin, which means Learning Together, is shared by the Kinàmàgawin Indigenous initiatives strategy published by the Carleton University Strategic Indigenous Initiatives Committee last year.
