Kis Kin Ha Ma Ki Win
Land based Indigenous science camps in your community, and campus internships for youth
Kis Kin Ha Ma Ki Win is a three year initiative to provide local youth with opportunities to learn about environmental sciences through indigenous cultural worldview and customs. Each camp and internship will have a focus on helping to protect the land and water in or surrounding your community.
Project Mission: To promote the shared value of environmental science and Indigenous traditions through community-shaped, land-based Indigenous camps, workshops, and internships.
Project Goals: To provide Indigenous youth with opportunities to learn about environmental sciences through Indigenous cultural worldviews and customs.
This initiative is being housed within the University of Manitoba through Wa Ni Ska Tan: An Alliance of Hydro-Impacted Communities.
Wa Ni Ska Tan represents an alliance of Cree, Anishinaabe, and Metis communities, researchers from the university community and non-governmental organizations who work together to draw awareness to complex and interconnected implications of hydropower as they relate to environmental, social, cultural, and health impacts.
