Ruthie Tucker founded the organization in the fall of 2018 because St. Norbert College needed representation from Indigenous students across campus.
We have continually worked on building our presence on campus and the larger, surrounding communities. We hold educational events on campus to promote native culture and traditions. We find it of the utmost importance to share our traditions and ways of living because our ancestors were not allowed to express their native identities.
The Council of Indigenous People aims to be a group for Native students to find a sense of home and familiarity. Furthermore, we welcome all students who are willing to learn with us and promote indigenity.
We are proud to have had two successful years of programming and we will continue to expand education about Indigeneity and our networks.
