Continuing our Journey

NIB Trust Fund provides resources to create opportunities that improve the quality of life for First Nations and Métis in Canada. These are some of our stories.

At Coyote Pride, they believe that mentoring preserves a way of life based on spirituality, sacredness, reciprocity, education, and social responsibility. With the integration of cultural pride, it preserves and protects the health and well-being of the youth.  Through these mentoring sessions youth received the opportunity to learn different tribal regions, language lessons in Cree, and storytelling/legends within eight (8) different schools in the Edmonton region.
