Niisaachewan Anishinaabe Nation had the privilege and honour of welcoming special invited guest – The Honourable Marc Miller – Minister of Indigenous Services.
Minister Miller got Thee Grande Tour of the Community, our new facilities/ offices/ gym, as we also took him down memory lane and educated him on the history of our beloved homeland, the Dalles Rapids, water levels, and the infamous channel. We took some much needed time to discuss a variety important initiatives and topics such as our communities needs and priorities, past and future business developments, current high profile projects and our communities mandate.
It’s times like these that we are encouraged to provide healthy examples of Government to Government Relationship Building through simple, meaningful ways that are guided by our Traditional Protocols and Practice.
Partnerships are key!
Chief and Council would like to give a big Miigwetch to all the youth and elders, staff, coordinated help that came to participate today! We would also like to thank the drummers, protocol advisor/ helper, and acknowledge the sacred traditional items in attendance as we really felt the community spirit alive and well.
