On September 20, 2022, MKO Grand Chief Garrison Settee attended the Nishnawbe Aski Nation’s (NAN) forum on child and family services.

Grand Chief Garrison Settee shares the following:

“It was an honour to attend the Nishnawbe Aski Nation Child and Family Services Forum this morning in Treaty One territory. I applaud the ongoing efforts of the Nishnawbe Aski Nation in the area of child welfare.

While it is a monumental task to reform child welfare and reassert our jurisdiction in this area as First Nations, I want to encourage everyone who is advocating for our children to continue your important work. Let us strive to build a future where our First Nations children, youth, and families feel fully supported and empowered.”
