Name of creator
Formerly known as the Aboriginal Education Centre located at City Centre Campus (room 7-131) and South Campus, kihêw waciston received its name on August 23, 2016 in a traditional ceremony, and means eagle’s nest in Cree. On November 7, 2019, the centre officially opened in the Robbins Centre in the space formerly known as Paul Byrne Hall (9-115). The new enhanced space was created to support a wide range of support services and educational opportunities for MacEwan students and the community, and was designed to facilitate Indigenous teachings, reflect Indigenous perspectives on wellness and to foster a sense of community. It features a circular layout with a gathering room, kitchen facilities, and a wellness space with night sky installation and wîwîp’son Indigenous therapeutic swing below.
Managers: Jane Woodward, Coordinator (1993?-2001), Lynda Ferguson (2002-2006), Eva Stang (2007-2012), Kathy Davis, Acting (2013-2015), Judy Iseke (2015-2016), Terri Suntjens, (2016-2017).
Directors: Terri Suntjens (2017-).
