Maamowiijidiwag

Supporting mental wellness during COVID-19 restrictions

Thank you to all who participated in Maamowiijidiwag.

 

Maamowiijidiwag means “They come together, meet with each other”.

 

When we were asked to limit travel and gatherings to keep our communities safe, Nokiiwin responded by hosting virtual sessions free of charge to allow our communities, partners, and all who wish to join us to have some social time together, learn new things, and keep active.

 

We shared talks with Elders, hosted fitness classes, cooked and baked together, learned about ice fishing safety, went on virtual art gallery tours, and more during this initiative. You can see the full list of the events below.

 

We hope that this initiative helped to maintain connection to your community and culture during these trying times.
