Garry Sault, an Ojibway elder from Mississauga’s New Credit Nation, performed a Sunrise Ceremony at Massey College this morning.

The college also unveiled a new mural in the northwestern corner, outside the Round Room, and the Massey Chapel has been designated as an interfaith Chapel Royal.

In the spring of 2005, I graduated from the University of British Columbia with a degree in International Relations and a general focus in the area of environmental politics. In the fall of 2005, I began reading for an M.Phil in IR at Wadham College, Oxford. Outside school, I am very interested in photography, writing, and the outdoors. I am writing this blog to keep in touch with friends and family around the world, provide a more personal view of graduate student life in Oxford, and pass on some lessons I've learned here.

  1. The sunrise ceremony, conducted by Elder Garry Sault, begins at 7:30 am to mark the beginning of Massey College’s special partnership with the Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation. The ceremony will take place in the presence of The Honourable Elizabeth Dowdeswell, Lieutenant Governor of Ontario. A tour follows of the revisioned Chapel Royal, which includes themed commissions of a mural by artist Philip Cote and windows by glass artist Sarah Hall. The partnership arose from the designation of the Chapel Royal by the Queen on National Aboriginal Day.
