Keeseekoowenin Ojibway Nation moving forward slowly with program and nation development

September 8, 2021

Treaty 2 Territory – FNt2T Internal/External Keeper was in Keeseekoowenin Ojibway First Nation on Wednesday September 8, 2021, to meet with leadership. Chief Norman Bone and councillor Alison Mckay talked about how Keeseekoowenin dealt with the pandemic and the effects it had on the nation and in the territory. Chief Bone discussed how hard it was on the mental health of the members in the nation and with leadership. The pandemic effected all program areas in Keeseekoowenin.

On the positive side, Chief Bone and councillor Alison Mckay talked about the youth centre that was built just before the pandemic hit and now plans for opening the centre for the youth of Keeseekoowenin. Chief Bone said they were slowly starting the process of opening up all programs and getting ready for the 4 th wave by practising covid precautions, also following provincial pandemic protocols to keep the members of Keeseekoowenin safe. In the upcoming months depending on pandemic restrictions, FNT2T will be engaging members of Keeseekoowenin in the area of Children, Families and Nation, to begin to develop local family laws for Keeseekoowenin with member engagement. It was a great visit in Keeseekoowenin. FNT2T continues to support the members and leadership of Keeseekoowenin as they move forward for a brighter future.
