President Gillian Siddall will also wear the regalia at her installation ceremony.

THUNDER BAY — Indigenous communities will be honoured this week both during the installation of Gillian Siddall as president of Lakehead University, and at the university's convocation ceremonies.

According to information published in LU's Campus Connection, the robe – designed by Beverli Barnes – is made of vibrant blue silk with black linen panels and silver piping. The sash for the Thunder Bay convocation was created by Anishinaabe advocate Daanis Pelletier-Howcroft from Fort William First Nation.

"As a student and a member of the communities whose land Lakehead is on, it was empowering to make this sash," Pelletier-Howcroft said. Graduation ceremonies in Thunder Bay on Thursday and Friday will include the bestowing of honorary degrees on Rosie Mosquito, a member of Bearskin Lake First Nation, and Patricia Ningewance Nadeau from Lac Seul First Nation.
