INAUGURATION OF A NEW CHILDHOOD-FAMILY SERVICE AT KIUNA

By |January 21st, 2020|

It is with great pleasure that Kiuna College launched Skamon Childhood Services on January 20, 2020.

Established by the First Nations Education Council in 2011, the Kiuna Institution aims to improve educational success and to increase higher educational levels by providing a stimulating learning environment that respects the values and traditions of First Nations.

In keeping with Kiuna’s mission and with the instrumental support of their partners, they have established Skamon Childhood Services. The word Skamon means corn in the Abenaki language. Echoing the traditional use of corn plants by the Abenaki, Skamon Services are intended to be an enabler of growth and resilience for the children as well as the accompanying student-parents.

More specifically, the children of their students will now have access to specialized services such as:

Assessments and support measures for learning disabilities

  • Neuropsychological assessments
  • Affective assessments
  • Multidisciplinary meetings with schools

Psychotherapeutic follow-ups for emotional difficulties

  • Therapy for children
  • Therapy for parents
  • Therapy for parents & children

Follow-ups in psychoeducation and special education

  • Social abilities
  • Psychomotor stimulation
  • Stress management
  • Homework support
  • Language workshops
  • Parental abilities
  • Zootherapy (to come)

NOTICE TO ODANAK BAND MEMBERS | CLASS ACTION FOR FEDERAL INDIAN DAY SCHOOLS

By |November 28th, 2019|

This notice concerns the compensation for survivors who attended federal Indian day schools or federal day schools funded, managed and controlled by Canada and listed such as St. Francis Academy (St. Joseph Academy), Pierreville Anglican/Protestant Abenaki Indian School, St. Francis Protestant, Anglican Church and St. Joseph’s.

The claim process was expected to commence on or about November 19, 2019, but due to a legal challenge to the Indian day-school regulations on the part of David Schulze (Partner, Dionne Schulze, S.E.N.C.S) on behalf of his client, a group member, the claims process is delayed for an indefinite period.

As soon as we get more information on this subject, we will keep you informed.

For more information about the ruling, please visit the following website: https://indiandayschools.com

If you have questions or need support, please dial 1-844-539-3815.

GALART 2019 | PRIX PATRIMOINE ET MUSÉOLOGIE | CULTURE CENTRE-DU-QUÉBEC (In French only)

By |November 25th, 2019|

La directrice générale du Musée des Abénakis, Madame Geneviève Bédard, en compagnie de Martin Paré, directeur régional de Culture et Communications Québec Mauricie

Le 21 novembre dernier avait lieu la seizième édition du GalArt de Culture Centre-du-Québec, soirée annuelle de reconnaissance des intervenants culturels centricois. C’est avec beaucoup de fierté que le Musée des Abénakis s’est vu décerner le Prix Patrimoine et muséologie pour son exposition temporaire l’Indien au-delà d’Hollywood.

Placé sous le thème « Culture physique », le GalArt 2019 a tracé des parallèles entre l’artiste et l’athlète. Il a mis en valeur ceux qui utilisent le corps comme moyen d’expression; a souligné la force, l’endurance et la souplesse requises par plusieurs disciplines; a reconnu nombre de tâches physiques incluses dans le métier. À l’instar de la vie d’athlète, être artiste requiert de la rigueur et de la sueur pour passer maître dans sa discipline. Il s’avère juste de dire qu’en ce domaine, inspiration rime souvent avec transpiration. Cette édition rend donc hommage aux artistes, artisans et travailleurs culturels qui ont trimé dur afin que leurs œuvres voient le jour.

Le Musée des Abénakis tient à féliciter les Archives Bois-Francs, pour leur vidéo promotionnelle ainsi que le Conseil des Abénakis de Wôlinak, pour leur série documentaire Les Abénakis de Bécancour, d’hier à aujourd’hui, finalistes 2019 du Prix Patrimoine et muséologie. De plus, il applaudit tous les lauréats 2019 ainsi que les finalistes des différentes catégories.

DENUNCIATION OF SELF-PROCLAIMED GROUPS ACTIVE ON THE NDAKINA

By |November 25th, 2019|

The W8banaki Nation (Abenaki) has learned that an event occurred during the weekend of November 16th in the w8banaki community of Odanak in connection with the Métis Nation in Quebec through a publication freely circulating on Facebook.

Considering that the W8banaki Nation is engaged in a process of denouncing self-proclaimed groups active on the Ndakina, it is therefore necessary to denounce this event and to specify that it does not recognize any legitimacy to this organization.
