A group of people coming together to work as one
At Miskanawah, “Practice is Ceremony”: guided by our Indigenous teachings and traditions, we invite our families to join us in ceremony, and to join us in circle, where we can offer supports and resources that are meaningful to them, while paralleling Children Services requirements.
Our approach is an offering to our families – it is invitational and relationship-based, rooted within Indigenous ways of being and knowing. When individuals accept these offerings, the healing begins and our children’s safety is enhanced through greater connection to the Creator, self, children/youth, family and the wider community, building lifelong connections.
The Mahmawi-atoskiwin program originated from an alliance with the Boys and Girls Clubs of Calgary, Enviros, and Pathways Community Services Association. This program works alongside individuals and their family to provide support in health, safety, and wellness that is based on traditional Indigenous teachings and western practice.
Families are informed of additional community resources and supports that includes parent education, and home visitation to help further develop confidence, and positive relationships between family members, personal culture and community, while developing a sense of belonging, pride and tradition.
