Shingwauk Kinoomaage Gamig in Sault Ste. Marie is founded on an Anishinaabe vision of learning as established by Chief Shingwauk.
Chief Shingwauk (1773-1854) envisioned a “teaching wigwam” for his people, providing educational tools to support Anishinaabe students to thrive in modern society without compromising the values or integrity of our culture, knowledge, and traditions. Shingwauk Kinoomaage Gamig, in collaboration with Algoma University, offers the only Anishinaabemowin (Ojibwe language) and Anishinaabe Studies B.A. programs in Canada. Language immersion and land-based education courses are available throughout the year for full- or part-time study. These programs are part of the overall mission of Shingwauk Kinoomaage Gamig to restore the original spirit and intent of Chief Shingwauk’s vision.

My Choice. My Path.
“Shingwauk focuses on Anishinaabe studies instead of general Indigenous studies, and as a historian that was important. Our classes are different, we have outdoor activities, there is a lot of discussion, and we sit in a circle which is a traditional way of learning and teaching.”
