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

 

We have all been asked to limit travel and gatherings to keep our communities safe. Nokiiwin knows that this can be hard on mental wellness and we are here to help. We will be 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 at this unusual time.

 

We look forward to sharing talks with Elders, fitness classes, cooking and baking classes, storytelling, and more during this initiative.

Watch this page for news on virtual events and opportunities to maintain connection to your community and culture.
