In 1991, Algoma University incorporated Shingwauk University, an independent Indigenous / Canadian cross-cultural educational institution. Shingwauk University is known as Shingwauk Kinoomaage Gamig, and is inspired by Chief Shingwauk’s vision of blending traditional Indigenous knowledge with mainstream teachings. It is currently being developed by the Shingwauk Education Trust (SET), which is also based on Shingwauk’s vision. Shingwauk University is an institution that is accredited by the World Indigenous Nations Higher Education Consortium (WINHEC), an internationally recognized organization.
