Our Mission

The Indigenous Leadership Initiative  is dedicated to facilitating the strengthening of Indigenous nationhood for the fulfillment of the Indigenous cultural responsibility to our lands, the emergence of new generations of Indigenous leaders, and helping communities develop the skills and capacity that they will need as they continue to become fully respected and equally treated partners in Canada’s system of governance and its economic and social growth.

“Keeping our culture alive is all about being part of the land, being part of the wildlife, the fish and the birds.”
