Treaty 2 Territory – Over the past month the Children, Families, and Nation Circle, & Peacemaking Circle have been conducting Virtual Engagement Sessions, with the members in the Treaty 2 Territory, regarding Law development. During the sessions, the members have an opportunity to hear what Treaty 2 is working towards in the Children, Families and Nation Circle & Peacemaking circle. Feedback has been a key component during each engagement session, our team strongly focuses on capturing the voices of our Nation.
Through self- determination Treaty 2 recognizes the responsibility to care for our children, to be custodians of their safety, to promote their well-being, to build their self-confidence, to help build their identity, as a sacred responsibility granted to us by the creator. Within the Declaration of the law, there are key rights and principles to ensure that children are connected to their extended family, and to procure that the extended Anishinaabe family has the customary duty to care for the children. That services and support services strengthen mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual functioning, that provide for family preservation. To enlist all citizens of the Nation to assure the protection of children as a customary duty as defined by the law.
