Our Mission is to ensure that society is constantly enriched with young adults who are proud of their rich heritage and prepared for living productive lives.
We arrived here by listening to our Elders, accepting the responsibility and by doing the work. Authenticity, integrity and tradition is built into the fabric of all that we do.
We pride ourselves on our ability to speak our minds and to do the right thing. Our independence gives us the freedom to stand up and place the focus where it needs to be… on our young people, their families and the strengthening of communities.
