FNTI (First Nations Technical Institute), an Indigenous owned and controlled post-secondary institute, was created in 1985 through innovative and dynamic partnerships between the Tyendinaga Mohawk Council, FNTI Board of Directors, Indian & Northern Affairs Canada, and the Ontario Ministry of Education & Training, to provide access to post-secondary programs for Aboriginal people.
FNTI is federally incorporated, and is governed by an independent board of directors. FNTI is not a political organization. Currently there are some 300 post-secondary students and adult learners from across the country enrolled in capacity building programs at FNTI, and over FNTI's history there have been over 2000 successful graduates from a variety of certificate, diploma and degree programs.
The FNTI logo incorporates the Tree of Peace, a symbol of the Haudenosaunee Iroquois Confederacy, to represent the intellectual traditions and cultures of Indigenous peoples and are the foundation of FNTI academic initiatives. A stylized friendship wampum belt represents the many peoples who participate in FNTI's sharing and learning initiatives and are the foundation of FNTI's existence. This belt is modeled after an existing friendship wampum belt which confirms the pure path of peace and friendship between Anishinabe and Haudenosaunee peoples.
