Building on the interest of First Nations child and family services leaders to create a national networking organization, the First Nations Child and Family Caring Society of Canada (the Caring Society) was developed at the Squamish First Nation in 1998 at a national meeting of First Nations child and family service agencies. Meeting delegates agreed that a national nonprofit organization was required to provide research, policy, professional development and networking to support First Nations child and family service agencies in caring for First Nations children, youth and families. An interim board was elected and the plan was approved at a second national meeting at Kingsclear First Nation in 1999.

Through our cultural teachings & practices, our relationship to the land has supported our health and well-being since before recorded history. York Landing (Kawéchiwásik) is now home to our community, but our ancestral home at York Factory (Kischi Wáskáhikan) continues to be at the coast.

Oshki-ishkonigan – Peguis First Nation – Treaty 1 Territory

Peguis First Nation is a Treaty 1 First Nation, located in Manitoba, Canada. With a population of approximately 10,246 members of Ojibway and Cree descent, it is the largest First Nation community in Manitoba. The main community of Peguis First Nation, Peguis 1B, is located approximately 196 kilometres north of Winnipeg, MB. Peguis First Nation has a rich culture, strong traditions and a significant history within Canada. The community is named after Chief Peguis. Peguis led the band of Saultaux people from present day Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario to a settlement at Netley Creek, Manitoba, and later to St.Peter’s (present day East Selkirk, Manitoba). After an illegal land transfer in 1907, Peguis First Nation was moved to its present location at Peguis 1B. Severe flooding in Manitoba in 2011 caused serious damage to housing and infrastructure and led to people evacuating from 18 First Nations communities. Peguis First Nation was one of the First Nations affected by this flooding.

Most southern First Nation parents are unaware of their rights when dealing with Child and Family Services (CFS). The child welfare system can be overwhelming and intimidating to navigate, and the lack of awareness of parent’s rights further compounds these issues. In order to directly address this problem, the Chiefs’ Standing Committee on Child Welfare issued a Directive to the Southern First Nation Network of Care that requires their child and family service workers to verbally inform First Nation parents of their rights when workers attend to child protection matters.

Both Berens River and Brokenhead Ojibway Nation now deliver their own Training & Employment Programs. First Nations take over delivery of services when they feel it is beneficial to their communities. In other areas, because of economies of scale, the First Nations believe it is in their best interests to have Southeast Resource Development Council Corp. deliver the services. Each First Nation will deliver local services at their own pace and in tune with their level of development.

In the early 1960’s the First Nations people of the Swan River Valley began to see a need for a place of their own, where they could feel comfortable meeting to share concerns or just get together recreation-ally. By 1961 the service providers of the community were becoming aware of the need to provide native people with some assistance in taking their rightful place in the rapidly changing society. By 1963, with the support and encouragement of the larger community, the first site of the Swan River Indian & Metis Friendship Centre Association was purchased. The building was located at 711 North Street South. In May 1990, the Friendship Centre purchased an existing building and completely renovated it. On September 10, 1990, a Grand Opening Ceremony took place opening our present building, which is located at 1413 Main Street East. On June 24, 1993, the Swan River Indian and Metis Friendship Centre name was changed to Swan River Friendship Centre Inc.

During this time, we developed an intimate relationship with the land that represents an unbroken cultural thread transmitted from our ancestors to current members of the community. To be Ininéwak was, and still is, to be part of an ancient tradition that mastered and specialized in life through the most challenging environments. Through our cultural teachings & practices, our relationship to the land has supported our health and well-being since before recorded history. York Landing (Kawéchiwásik) is now home to our community, but our ancestral home at York Factory (Kischi Wáskáhikan) continues to be at the coast.

During this time, we developed an intimate relationship with the land that represents an unbroken cultural thread transmitted from our ancestors to current members of the community. To be Ininéwak was, and still is, to be part of an ancient tradition that mastered and specialized in life through the most challenging environments. Through our cultural teachings & practices, our relationship to the land has supported our health and well-being since before recorded history. York Landing (Kawéchiwásik) is now home to our community, but our ancestral home at York Factory (Kischi Wáskáhikan) continues to be at the coast. We remain deeply connected to our traditional territory. At every opportunity, we return to the coast to celebrate our community, land, and culture.

Building on the interest of First Nations child and family services leaders to create a national networking organization, the First Nations Child and Family Caring Society of Canada (the Caring Society) was developed at the Squamish First Nation in 1998 at a national meeting of First Nations child and family service agencies. Meeting delegates agreed that a national nonprofit organization was required to provide research, policy, professional development and networking to support First Nations child and family service agencies in caring for First Nations children, youth and families. An interim board was elected and the plan was approved at a second national meeting at Kingsclear First Nation in 1999.

In the early 1960’s the First Nations people of the Swan River Valley began to see a need for a place of their own, where they could feel comfortable meeting to share concerns or just get together recreation-ally. By 1961 the service providers of the community were becoming aware of the need to provide native people with some assistance in taking their rightful place in the rapidly changing society. By 1963, with the support and encouragement of the larger community, the first site of the Swan River Indian & Metis Friendship Centre Association was purchased. The building was located at 711 North Street South. In May 1990, the Friendship Centre purchased an existing building and completely renovated it. On September 10, 1990, a Grand Opening Ceremony took place opening our present building, which is located at 1413 Main Street East. On June 24, 1993, the Swan River Indian and Metis Friendship Centre name was changed to Swan River Friendship Centre Inc.

Kischewaskahegan – York Landing – York Factory – Treaty 5 Territory

P: 204-341-2180

http://www.yffn.ca/

The York Factory First Nation (YFFN) Ininéwak have lived on the land that is now northeastern Manitoba for thousands of years – since the glaciers melted. During this time, we developed an intimate relationship with the land that represents an unbroken cultural thread transmitted from our ancestors to current members of the community. To be Ininéwak was, and still is, to be part of an ancient tradition that mastered and specialized in life through the most challenging environments. Through our cultural teachings & practices, our relationship to the land has supported our health and well-being since before recorded history. York Landing (Kawéchiwásik) is now home to our community, but our ancestral home at York Factory (Kischi Wáskáhikan) continues to be at the coast. We remain deeply connected to our traditional territory. At every opportunity, we return to the coast to celebrate our community, land, and culture.

Manitoba Museum Indigenous Connections

The Manitoba Museum acknowledges we are on Treaty No. 1 land, and the homeland of the Métis Nation. These lands, occupied for thousands of years, are the traditional territories of the Anishinaabeg, Ininiwak, and Nakota Nations. We are a museum for, and about, Indigenous people; which serves Indigenous needs and incorporates multiple Indigenous perspectives in all aspects of museum knowledge, exhibitions, education and programs. We collaborate with Indigenous communities in how to represent Indigenous histories and cultures, building on the recommendations of the Task Force on Museums and First Nations Peoples of 1994. We consult with Indigenous Elders and knowledge keepers on the care, storage and exhibition protocols related to Indigenous collections. We work with Residential School survivors to develop programming which addresses the history of residential schools, and how to share experiences of survivance, resilience, and contemporary contributions. We believe in supporting and promoting Indigenous languages through the incorporation of these languages in our exhibitions, publications, and programs. We developed a new permanent Treaty exhibition and new Treaty education program in collaboration with the Treaty Relations Commission of Manitoba. We offer an Indigenous Scholars in Residence program; and Treaty acknowledgement is on our website, and is shared before every Planetarium show, Museum program and all public events. The Manitoba Museum offers an Indigenous Scholars in Residence Program enabling Indigenous post-graduate university students to have scholarly access to the Museum’s collections to advance their academic practice. This successful program is now in its fourth year.
