Welcome to our new site,
Le Cercle Sacré Anishinabe Sacred Circle is a non-for-profit organization awaiting its charitable status and was created at the beginning to raise awareness about the threats of Water and the 2019 Mother Earth Water Walk, but during the process, it became very clear that much more was needed.
A First Nations, Métis and Inuit cultural center in Gatineau must be a priority!
I've been on this path for more than twenty years, I've been knocking on several doors for a long time to encourage the need for a place in Gatineau to meet and share the culture and I'm not getting anywhere, it's been dragging on for too long... Now is the time! I will not wait any longer after the provincial or federal government, we can carry out this project! We are survivors!
Urban First Nations families are not as fortunate as families living on reserves culturally speaking. In urban areas, it's not just there, they have to look for it and when they find it, they're captivated. They want to know more.
Knowing who we are is essential to understanding how to manage conflict in a healthy way; identity is fundamental to First Nations, to those who have suffered and are still suffering from the after-effects of residential schools, for those who are just discovering their roots today, and for all those who are still searching for their identity.
The organization's goal is to empower first-nation, Métis, Inuit, status, non-status and self-identified youth, women, men and seniors by facilitating discussion circles, healing programs and traditional teachings circles by thinking about different ways to develop their full potential.
You can make a difference. Your donations can help make this happen! An Anishinabe cultural center will benefit everyone who are interested in learning about culture and becoming allies towards Reconciliation!
