Education is key in capacity-building

CNG Summit

Delegates at the Cree Nation Government’s Summit on Building Capacity for Eeyou Istchee heard a message loud and clear: collaboration and education are key to our success as a Nation. From Grand Chief Abel Bosum's opening and closing mantra - "If there are no big dreams, there are no accomplishments," to the Cree School Board's call to collaborative action, to Youth Grand Chief Kaitlynn Hester's moving remarks - "We want you to move, to act - we want you to walk the talk" - the atmosphere at the Sheraton Centre in Montreal on October 23 and 24, 2019 was filled with hope, dedication, and collaboration.

"I just wish people would realize that anything's possible if you try." Students took those words from Terry Fox to heart, and raised more than $11,000 in this year's runs and walks around their communities.
