About the Kaaweechimoseaywat Program

The Kaaweechimoseaywat (‘walking with one another’) Program at the Centre for Aboriginal Health Education is an opportunity for First Nations, Métis and Inuit students to connect with mentors within the university, health professions and the community. CAHE’s mentors are available to assist with exploring career options, making connections with the community and culture (both Aboriginal and professional), and with finding ways to deal with the challenges of academic and professional life.

To become a CAHE Mentor or find out more about the program, please contact the centre.

About our name…
Kaaweechimoseaywat (pronounced kahy – ee – jay - moh – say - awt), is an Ojibway word meaning ‘walking with one another’.

The name was given to the mentoring program by our Elder-in-Residence, Margaret Lavallee, since it reflects our philosophy about working with students as they embark on the path to their chosen health profession.
