Indigenous Initiatives Circle
The mandate of King's Indigenous Initiatives Circle (IIC) is to further the university's commitments to indigenization and reconciliation.
IIC works with indigenous communities, students, and advisors to inform its work and to invite future participation. Following the adage, nothing about us without us, the Indigenous Initiative Circle is first and foremost a place of listening and deep commitment to each other, hospitality and social transformation.
