Statement on the Passing of Lee Maracle

“With tremendous sadness, we mark the passing of the extraordinary Lee Maracle—poet, author, member of U of T’s Elders Circle, former Traditional Teacher-in-Residence at the Indigenous Student Services, and a former instructor at U of T’s Centre for Indigenous Studies and the Transitional Year Programme. Across all three campuses, we are lowering University of Toronto flags to half-mast on November 15, 2021 as a sign of our profound respect for Lee and our gratitude for the incredible contributions she has made to this University; to the students she mentored and taught here; and to all members of the U of T community who have been fortunate to work with her and receive her guidance.”
