Indigenous dance performances captivated a University Centre audience on September 15 as part of Aboriginal Culture Week.

Organized by uOttawa’s Aboriginal Resource Centre (ARC), the event showcased a number of students performing traditional dances, each telling its own story.

"Aboriginal Culture Week serves to highlight the fact that the many Indigenous students on campus have their place here at the University," said Sebastien Pilon, aboriginal outreach officer at ARC.
