Oki, Âba Wathtech, Danit’ada, Tanshi, Tansi and Kwe’ everyone!
June 21st is Indigenous People’s Day in Canada and we would like to take a moment to celebrate and honour some of the Elders that walk alongside us and guide us in our journey of learning to be a good relative, here, in Moh’kins’stis. Today, and every day we are grateful for all that they teach us about humility, love, respect, honesty, bravery, wisdom, and truth.
