The Southern First Nations Network of Care (SFNNC) and Wiijii’idiwag Ikwewag invites you to a sacred feast and ceremony to honour and bless it’s new initiative, Restoring the Sacred Bond.
Restoring the Sacred Bond offers a new model for health in our First Nations communities.
Balancing traditional knowledge with current education, birthing science and proven support systems, the Restoring the Sacred Bond Initiative offers new hope for healing First Nations communities. In it's governance role, the Southern First Nations Network of Care is responsible for supporting our program delivery partner – Wiijii’idiwag Ikwewag – to meet key performance indicators of reducing the number of First Nations infants apprehended at birth.
The Fire of Our First Nations Lives Within Our Women
We believe that reigniting the personal power of our women is the critical first step in strengthening the bond between mother and child and healing our communities.
Through the Restoring the Sacred Bond initiative, our goal is to create a successful, scalable program model that supports the health of our Manitoba First Nations communities by facilitating circles of women coming together and reclaiming their roles as guardians of the sacred bond between mother and baby.
