National Indigenous History Month & Youth and Family Wellness Camp

The Great Canadian Giving Challenge (hosted by CanadaHelps) and National Indigenous History Month are underway for the month of June. 

Ma’Mo’Weh Wii’Soo’Ka’Tiwin Foundation is actively raising funds this month to support over 1000 children and youth from nine First Nations in the Kenora area to participate in land-based programs and activities over the summer months. These will be delivered by the Kenora Chiefs Advisory at their Youth and Family Wellness Camp on a 350 acre property located on Black Sturgeon Lake in Kenora. 

Together with your support, we will get to see Indigenous children and youth doing what they should be doing on their summer holidays; playing, having fun, and also learning important life and leadership skills. The needs are basic in some cases. We are hopeful that you can contribute for the following: 

  • Rubber Boots @ $65.95 per camper
  • Running Shoes @ $105.05 per camper
  • Life Jackets @ $99.99 each
  • Bathing Suits @ $61.18 per camper
  • Sunscreen @ $19.47 per camper
  • Beading Supplies $52.01 per project per camper
  • Sewing Machine for Jingle Dresses and Ribbon Skirts @ $259.99 each
  • Materials for Jingle Dress $176.05
  • Materials for Ribbon Skirt $92.65
  • 5 Swim Lessons $225
  • Trail Ride for a Day with Horses $164
  • Attend Overnight Camp for 1 Night per camper $142.85
  • Attend Day Camp for 1 Day per camper $67.02

Also throughout the month of June, we are participating in the Great Canadian #GivingChallengeCA.  For every dollar that you donate to Ma’Mo’Weh Wii’Soo’Ka’Tiwin Foundation through CanadaHelps, the Foundation is entered into a draw to win $20,000.  Should the Foundation be the successful recipient of the draw, the $20,000 will go a long way to supporting the summer programing at the Youth and Family Wellness Camp. 

For those of you in the Kenora area on June 21, The Kenora Chiefs Advisory, Grand Council Treaty 3 and Ne-Chee Friendship Centre invite you to join them at the Kenora Chiefs Advisory’s Youth and Family Wellness Camp at 371 Strecker Road, Kenora from 9 am to 8 pm, as we celebrate National Indigenous People Day and Indigenous creators in Treaty 3.  Check out for additional information. 

Together, with your support, we will get to see youth playing, having fun, laughing and sharing in their excitement at the Youth and Family Wellness Camp .

Thank you,
