The World Indigenous Higher Education Consortium (WINHEC) and WINU (World Indigenous Nations University) sent a congratulatory message to the newly appointed Governor General for Canada, Mary Simon.
Her Excellency, The Right Honourable Mary Simon becomes the first Indigenous person to be appointed in this role in Canada. As a proud Inuk woman from Northern Quebec, she represents the kind of leadership and strength that is critical for addressing many of the issues we face as Indigenous people today.
On behalf of our membership, we shared that this appointment goes far beyond Canada reaching every corner of the Indigenous world and brings us hope for much needed change.
We wish Madam Simon all the very best and know that her work will help to illuminate the hearts and spirits of both Indigenous and non-Indigenous people.
The World Indigenous Higher Education Consortium (WINHEC) wishes to send greetings and congratulations to the Ngaragu woman, Ashleigh Barty, who won the Wimbledon championship in tennis.
We realize that as the 2nd Indigenous woman to win the championship you will stand as a great model for young Indigenous people, not only in Australia, but across the world, as did Evonne Goolagong, a Wiradjuri woman, who was also triumphant in winning Wimbeldon 50 years ago. In our time, your victory is felt as a victory of the indigenous experience and its triumph over all the challenges faced by indigenous people around the world. This is even more so for young Indigenous men and women who often struggle to find their place in this every challenging world.
