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.

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.
