16th Annual Keeping the Fires Burning




Our people have come home… Ka Ni Kanichihk (pronounced Ga Ni Ganichick) means “those who lead” in the Ininew (Cree).   Led by visionary community leaders and Elders who understood the significance of culturally-based and Aboriginal-led services and leadership to social transformation, both on an individual and collective basis and who courageously and tenaciously set about the tasks of bringing their vision to action. Ka Ni Kanichihk provides a culturally safe environment where the greatness and gifts of all peoples are honoured and where our cultural practices and values are practiced and Aboriginal people can “just be who we naturally are.” Please take your time browsing our site to view the programs and resources we offer.

Ka Ni Kanichihk is proud to be a part of the Winnipeg Safe City Program.
