Healing Our Nations  
http://www.hon93.ca/

Our purpose is to educate First Nation people about HIV disease and AIDS. Knowing the risks associated with the spread of HIV and defining the myths and facts about AIDS is the first step to healing our nations. Eliminating the spread of AIDS in First Nation communities is not the only focus of our organization because we see this disease as only a symptom of a greater problem. Our goal is to help First Nation people rediscover their pride, traditions, and spirituality in an attempt to improve child development and eliminate family violence, substance abuse, depression, and suicide.

The SFNWC takes the lead on certain issues that are considered “women’s and children’s issues” in mainstream society, although not dictated as such in First Nations communities because First Nations philosophy emphasizes collective as opposed to individual rights.

The Saskatchewan First Nations’ Women’s Commission (SFNWC) was formed in 2000, first as a Council, and in February 2004, the Chiefs-in-Assembly voted for the FSIN Convention Act to be amended to include the SFNWC as the seventh Commission. The FSIN Women’s Act was ratified at the June 2004 Chiefs-in-Assembly and is a formal piece of legislation that validates the ongoing movement of Saskatchewan First Nations’ Women.
