Among the many openings for the back to school season, was the opening of the new Indigenous Centre at Seneca College Newnham Campus. Officially called Odeyto, which is “the good journey” in Anishinaabe, the 1,800 square facility includes offices, a computer lab, a kitchen and a dedicated area for Indigenous elders. Gow Hastings and Two Row Architects designed the building, which is invocative of a canoe, both from the outside, and notably on the inside with the distinctive wood beams appearing like the ribs of a canoe. The multi-purpose facility is the new home of FirstPeoples@Seneca, and is accessible to members of the broader Indigenouse community. An awakening ceremony was held on September 21st that included a dumming circle and the planting of a tree of peace.
CFMS is pleased to have provided commissioning for such an important project on the Seneca Campuses.
