Ma’wa’chi’hi’to’tan – Journeying in a Good Way

The Journey Continues…

Ma’wa’chi’hi’to’tan is Plains Cree for “let us gather together.” The conversation and gathering continues this year and we hope you’ll consider being part of it. If you are indigenous, or you work directly with indigenous people this gathering is for you.
