A Unity Agreement was signed between the Nations of Shoal Lake 40 First Nation, Washagamis Bay, Niisaachewan Anishinaabe Nation, and Wauzhushk Onigum Nation in October 2018 to coordinate the Nations’ shared experience, concerns, and interests as they relate to the Twinning of the Highway 17 between Manitoba/Ontario border and Kenora. This agreement marked the beginning of the Niiwin Wendaanimok Partnership. This newsletter is the fourth one produced since formation of the Partnership.
We sat down with the Board Members and asked them a few questions. Hear what Fabian Blackhawk (Niisaachewan), Erwin Redsky (Shoal Lake #40), Brenda Chartrand (Washagamis Bay), and George Kakeway (Wauzhushk Onigum) had to say about our tasks ahead, and get a quick look at key updates and see a timeline of activies and meetings since October.
