CLOQUET — Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College will host the World Indigenous Nations Higher Education Consortium (WINHEC) and World Indigenous Nations University (WINU) Aug. 12-18.

The event will be held in a hybrid fashion, featuring accommodations for those who can attend in person, as well as those from around the world who need to attend virtually, according to a news release. Registration for the event is open to the public. To register, please visit .

Through WINHEC accreditation of FDLTCC’s Anishinaabeg Gikendaasowinan, which is the collection of Indigenous focused programs at the college, Native and non-native students are sent out into the world fully prepared with the cultural values of the Ojibwe-Anishinaabe to work innovatively and jointly to solve problems, the news release said.

WINHEC was established in August 2002 at the World Indigenous Peoples Conference on Education (WIPCE) in Alberta, Canada. WINHEC’s aim is to bring professionals together to achieve common goals through higher education. Members come from many different countries and a variety of diverse areas such as university departments, research organizations and government agencies.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
