QNSA is comprised of a diverse group of Indigenous and non-Indigenous students that share an interest in Aboriginal cultures and traditions.
QNSA seeks to promote increased cultural understanding on campus and hopes for solidarity and cooperation towards achieving a campus-wide mutual respect.
The QNSA functions as a forum for students to discuss contemporary and historic issues pertaining to Indigenous peoples and cultures and actively works in collaboration with Four Directions Indigenous Student Centre, the Office of Indigenous Initiatives and the Queen’s Aboriginal Council to identify the needs of Indigenous students on campus.
Each year we plan and produce Indigenous Awareness Week on campus. This week long event has a different theme each year, and past themes have included Resistance, Medicines and Healing, and Allyship and Solidarity. Guest speakers, performers and campus-wide events bring together the Queen’s and Kingston community to learn about and critically engage with issues pertaining to that year’s theme.
All are welcome to join QNSA and take part in the many activities that we host on campus and in the broader Kingston community. For updates on QNSA’s work and how to get involved, you can follow us on Facebook or on Instagram @qnsaclub.
