Shingwauk Kinoomaage Gamig is committed to the restoration of the original spirit and intent of Chief Shingwauk, who envisioned a teaching wigwam where his people could acquire the necessary educational tools in modern society without comprising the values of our culture and traditions. In co-operation with our partner Algoma University, Shingwauk Kinoomaage Gamig (SKG) offers the only Anishinaabemowin (Ojibway language) B. A. program in Canada and has begun offering an Anishinaabe Studies B.A. program in autumn, 2018.
