The Indigenous Continuing Education Centre (ICEC) and First Nations University of Canada are situated on Star Blanket Cree Nation. Star Blanket is the first, First Nation in Canada to create an urban reserve specifically dedicated to the advancement of education.
ICEC’s logo is inspired, mirrored, and honoured through the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action to guide both Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples on their continued education journey.
ICEC’s relationship with the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action have been conceptualized by the Star Blanket. ICEC’s logo is a 6-pointed Star Blanket. Each point of the star represents one of the six Calls to Action and their uniquely assigned colour.
The symbol of a Star Blanket reminds us that despite our differences we, as both Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples are cut from the same cloth, all integral to the whole and a part of one masterpiece. The Star Blanket is inspired by the Morning Star, who represents new beginnings and is a guiding light to those who are lost.
Each of the Calls to Action are represented by an image of a traditional Indigenous plant medicine and has been assigned a specific colour.
