This session explores how an Indigenous women’s group feeds the physical, emotional, spiritual, academic and career spirits of attendees. It highlights how Indigenous women come together in a weekly luncheon group to offer connections, resources, emotional and cultural supports, as well as career-life planning strategies to help build a sense of belonging that adds to their academic and career success.

Learning Outcomes:
  • The power of culturally appropriate means of information sharing
  • Sense of belonging supports the success of Indigenous students
  • Significance of education as the bedrock of career-life planning
