Members of the Windsor Law community will participate in a dedication ceremony Monday, Oct. 25, to honour the spirits of the Indigenous People who were the original inhabitants of the territory on which the University of Windsor campus sits.

During the ceremony, Elders, Medicine People and Traditional Knowledge Keepers will be presented with the sacred medicine of tobacco. Tobacco is a traditional medicine used to promote physical, spiritual, emotional, and community well-being. It may be used as an offering to the Creator or to another person, place, or being. A gift of traditional tobacco is a sign of respect and may be offered when asking for help, guidance, or protection. On Monday, the Original Spirits and inhabitants of the land will be acknowledged, fêted, and honoured to move forward with the transformed law building in a respectful way.
