AFCS Team Retreat

Elk Ridge Resort – Waskesiu SK

Promoting the Calls

AFCS has been hard at work promoting the TRC Truth and Reconciliation Commission Calls to Action and the National Inquiry into MMIWG Missing And Murdered Indigenous Women And Girls Calls for Justice and subsequent action plans to ensure our partners, stakeholders, and Friendship Centres know how their progress can be measured and celebrated.

If you are looking for ways to map out your reconciliation journey or understand how you can incorporate any of the Calls for Justice in your team, please reach out by contacting AFCS.

Team Building and Workshops

We decided to take time for a team-building staff retreat and work towards understanding our role better, and identify how we can all help and participate in how we as individuals and staff can promote each of the Calls for Action, Calls for Justice and some of the articles of UNDRIP, The United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.

Celebration and Fun

We used this time to do team-building exercises at the same time as learning and celebrating all of our successes. This also took the place of a “Christmas Party,” and time for all of the Christmas festivities and games included. It was also a great experience as a group to learn to sew hide and fur. We use techniques taught to us by an expert, to make traditional mittens.
