Our faculty has grown! We’re thrilled to announce that we have hired two new Assistant Professors. Cross-appointed with the Department of Linguistics, Amos Key Jr. and Ryan DeCaire will be teaching a variety of courses related to Haudenosaunee language and culture.

This year, Amos Key Jr., from the Six Nations of the Grand River community, will be teaching Politics and Process of Reconciliation in Canada, Indigenous Music: Technical and Theoretical Aspects, and Special Topics in Indigenous Language.

Ryan DeCaire, Kanien’kehá:ka (Mohawk) from Wáhta Kanien’kehá:ka territory will be teaching Introduction to an Iroquoian Language (Mohawk), Indigenous Environmental Science and Practice, and Revitalizing Languages.

The expansion of our teaching faculty is a huge milestone for our program. With more faculty members contributing to the research and teaching community at the Centre for Aboriginal Initiatives, we’re excited to see what the future brings for our program. We hope you’ll join us in welcoming both Amos and Ryan to the U of T community!
