In March, 2022, a forum on Indigenous self-identification was organized at First Nations University Canada by a group called National Indigenous University Senior Leaders’ Association (NIUSLA). This forum was only open to Indigenous people and The forum was convened to "discuss Indigenous perspectives on identity and citizenship and wise practices to validate Indigenous-specific opportunities at academic institutions." About 500 people attended this two-day gathering.
