Summary

the kakichihiwewin project aims to create strong bonds in Indigenous communities by continuing the healing process of those affected by the residential school system, boarding schools, the sixties scoop, foster care, and forced assimilation tactics. The legacy of traumas we face often make us feel like we're walking alone... but we aren't. the kakichihiwewin project is asking for your help to build our communities back up by creating accessible online healing circles and care kits.

Challenge

There's an ongoing genocide that Indigenous folx face every day. The loss of Native language, culture and family due to forced assimilation tactics. Many of the generations that experienced these traumas pass it along to their children and grandchildren leaving a lengthy line of people feeling alone, and unworthy of community and / or culture.

Solution

the kakichihiwewin project wants to remind our community members that they are seen, that they are valid and that they are loved - but above all else - they are worthy. By creating online healing circles (adhering to COVID-19 precautions) and sending out care kits we hope that this will help bring these folx solace in a tangible way. Our program also features an online storytelling series that highlights community members working hard to rebuild and regain what was so brutally taken away.

Long-Term Impact

The more Indigenous communities hold each other and validate our traumas through culture building and healing, there's a better chance our future generations will not have to relive the past. We want to create a future - that creates a common understanding of where we came from, where we are, and where we CAN go, all through offering love and hope via these community outreach initiatives.
