Maamwi Bmosedaa - Walking In Unity
We respectfully acknowledge the traditional territory of Nipissing First Nation in which our organization resides on. This nation has lived harmoniously with these lands and waters for generations. Today it is home to many different Indigenous people and other people. We respect the ongoing connection from the past, present, and future, along with our ongoing relationships with the Indigenous and other people within the community in which we have had the privilege to serve since July, 2020.
Endaayaan Awejaa is a start-up non-profit organization that is dedicated to providing all youth and families with safe places to heal and build solid foundations for their future.
Our mission statement is Maamwi Bmosedaa which means Walking in Unity. We strive to Walk In Unity with our youth, their families and our local community.
Our organization started during the COVID-19 pandemic with just a few volunteers. We all agreed that there is a great need for support in our community and united we became a solid team working in various capacities.
The pillars in which we incorporate into our work are arts & culture, reconciliation, education and harm reduction.
Currently Endaayaan Awejaa has opened their doors at 187 Main Street, West, North Bay. We have been providing support for youth and families needing assistance with groceries, closure, resources, connection to culture, or basic hygiene needs.
We have created ongoing workshops to promote healthy living and engage youth towards a path that caters to their strengths and sets them up for success. Our overall goal is to create an Indigenous youth home that will include our culture teachings, counselling, mentorship, workshops and activities.
