Statement of Need
In the West-End area of Edmonton and throughout Turtle Island there is a high population of Aboriginal children, youth families and individuals who are suffering from the effects of multi-generational trauma; a result of residential schools, colonization, relocation, smallpox, inflicted Christianity and loss of culture.
We strive to reduce the situations of abuse, apathy, isolation, low self-esteem, stress, grief addiction, violence and general pain in our peoples' lives. We strive to increase the indigeneity of our education, health, legal, psychological and social lifeways; through our cultural lens of belief, knowing and values.
