A self‐supporting, self‐reliant, sovereign First Nation where individuals share a strong cultural identity based on a deep understanding of who we are on a clear sense of continuity with our cultural roots. A community that lives in harmony with all of Creation, maintains a healthy balance between individual and community needs, and works productively with both other Aboriginal and non‐Aboriginal governments and communities based on a sense of equality. Where the Reserve communities have truly come together and whose members have a strong sense of self‐esteem, respect for each other and who work together for the betterment of all. In which the youth have a positive future and the Elders hand over a strong Nation, community to the next generation.
