First Nations, Metis & Inuit (FNMI) Alumni Chapter

Welcome FNMI Alumni!

In traditional times the Buffalo was the staff of life. In modern times a University education is the staff of life. In traditional times the Buffalo symbolized "all my relations". Today, the University of Lethbridge renews, strengthens and enlightens life-long relationships.
