deybwewin | taapwaywin | tapwewin Task Force and Advisory Circle

The deybwewin (Saulteaux) | taapwaywin (Michif) | tapwewin (Cree) Task Force and Advisory Circle developed a ground-breaking policy from which procedures and an implementation plan for Indigenous membership/citizenship verification with documentation at the University of Saskatchewan (USask) will be created. The policy was approved July 8, 2022 by the USask Board of Governors. A deybwewin (Saulteaux) | taapwaywin (Michif) | tapwewin (Cree): Indigenous Truth standing committee will lead and guide the USask community through the creation of the procedures and an implementation plan that will direct an appropriate, informed, respectful, and Indigenous-led process of Indigenous membership/citizenship verification at USask.

The name given to this task force, deybwewin (Saulteaux) | taapwaywin (Michif) | tapwewin (Cree) translates to “truth”.

The task force was chaired by Dr. Angela Jaime, Vice Provost, Indigenous Engagement (Interim); and the standing committee will also be chaired by Dr. Jaime. For information please contact: angela.jaime@usask.ca.
