A Celebration of Resilience

Six Nations Polytechnic and TAP Resources are excited to host the World Indigenous Peoples Conference on Education - the most prestigious Indigenous education event the world has to offer!

We are very grateful to the Native Hawaiian Education Association, WIPCE 2014 host, for their kindness, generosity, wisdom and most of all, their friendship as we transition to 2017.

Our team is working hard to plan an exceptional experience that showcases Indigenous peoples of this territory and beyond, with assistance from Tourism Toronto, sponsors, and community partners.

Let the adventure begin! – We look forward to sharing an exciting and unforgettable experience with you in Toronto, 2017!
