Aadizooke – Winter Solstice 2023

December 4, 2023

Join us in the Indigenous Support Centre F209 to celebrate the Winter Solstice with a Pipe Ceremony and Feast. The Winter Solstice marks the shortest day and the longest night of the year and is the point at which the Earth begins its return to the sun. The Winter Solstice typically occurs on December 21, but we invite everyone to celebrate with us on December 7 before classes come to a close.

No registration is required—everyone is welcome.

Date:     Thursday, December 7

Time:     10:00 am – Pipe Ceremony

               12:00 pm – Feast
