February 22, 2022

Treaty 2 Territory – The FNT2T Ikwewak (Women’s) Council met in person and virtually on February 22, 2022, at the FNT2T government office in Dauphin. There were representatives from the nations of Pinaymootang, Kithithkatchewanung, Keeseekoowenin, Tootinaowaziibeeng, Little Saskatchewan, Pine Creek, and Lake St. Martin. Helen Adamson of Kithithkatchewanung gave the opening prayer for the meeting. Gwen Traverse of Pinaymootang chaired the meeting. The council members gave their opening statements for each nation they represent. There were two agenda items on the agenda:

  • Overview of CPNW
  • Climate Change project data collection

Ron Missyabit Keeper of the Care and Protection of the Natural World gave an overview of what the CPNW Circle is doing and ask for input from the council on the workplan. The second part of the meeting was getting input from the council on the climate change project. How has the climate changed over the past few decades in the territory. This feedback will be gathered from each council as part of the climate change data needed. There was great feedback from the council members and this will add to the data collected for the climate change project. There will be interviews in the nations once it is safe to do so. Please look for upcoming notices and engagements in your nation. The FNT2T Ikwewak council meets regularly to give input and advice to the FNT2T government. Please stay safe and follow our face book page.
