Cultural Planning

Fort Severn Cultural Planning on the Land

Keewaytinook Okimakanak First Nations have integrated cultural planning training with Lands and Resources activities. Cultural planning is raising awareness for cultural priorities, building capacity to develop cultural plans that will enable the preservation of language culture and heritage. In 2012, Community Lands and Resources Offices coordinated gatherings and activities for the whole community to share their cultural priorities. The training included going through Culture Planning templates, learning about archaeology and developing our own cultural plan principals. Outings and field trips on the land will introduce youth to healthy choices on the land and lead them to find their own unique identity as a First Nations person.

The project will promote stronger youth, safer choices and stronger communities through strengthened culture.

Our partners include Ministry of Natural Resources, Lakehead University, Ministry of Tourism and Culture and Ministry of Development and Mines.

Funded by the Ministry of Tourism and Culture.
