miyo-wîcêhtowin is Cree for living in harmony together. The launch of CFNP is one more way that we can work together to create stronger relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples living in Canada, and build a miyo-wîcêhtowin that lasts.

    I am curious if there is a movement to have Indigenous languages be recognized as official languages in Canada.

    Thanks so much for your efforts. We really do need each other if we hope to create a just and healing world for ourselves and all our relations.

    Finally! A voice that deserves not only to be heard, but one that can be believed. Although I am not in favour of the large, cumbersome, costly and vastly overrated inquiry the once powerful and wanna be powerful are suggesting, there is definitely the need of to clarify why this is happening. There is also the immediate need to involve the law and give those powers the ability and funding to take this situation seriously. They could also do with a few lessons in how to combat misogyny and prejudice. Unfortunately, there are two strikes against these cases moving forward: They were women, and they were aboriginal. Thank you for speaking out. Louder, please!
