Our Thunderbird Symbol

The Thunderbird represents the inspiring heart of the Algoma University brand.

Its thunder, lightning and rain cleanses and gives power to the earth and its people.

Adopted in the early 1970's from the pictographs within the Agawa Bay region of Lake Superior, it symbolizes our collective hope as we emerge from a dark past into a brighter future for all - learning from and with each other.
