Children, Families, and Nation Circle continue Engagement with Local Nations in the Treaty 2 Territory

July 22, 2021

Treaty 2 Territory – The Children, Families and Nation Circle of Treaty 2 has developed an outward vision, with encouragement of diversity of viewpoints from individuals at the grass roots level, collective rather than individual throughout the feedback that has come back from the Nation Engagement sessions. Customary practices, traditional parenting, and special attention for those transitioning out of care has been the highlight of the feedback from the engagements thus far.

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. The importance of engaging with our Local Nations is to capture the voices of our Anishinaabe people in the Treaty 2 Territory.

To date we have met with:

  • Ebb and Flow First Nation – April 28, 2021
  • Dauphin River First Nation – May 5, 2021
  • Gambler First Nation – May 12, 2021
  • Pinaymootang First Nation – May 19, 2021
  • Urban Engagement Session – June 2, 2021
  • Open to all Treaty 2 members Engagement Session – June 16, 2021

Going forward – July and August will focus on individual key informant interviews with Knowledge Keepers, Elders, Women’s/Grandmothers group, youth, representative from Chief and Council, specific program authorities, parents or parenting groups, and other groups as may be deemed appropriate or individuals which self-identify to be part of the interviews & time given.
