Indigenous Women's Capacity Building
For the last several years, WAWC has received funds to be able to support the capacity development of its board and membership. In the fall of 2019 two members were able to attend the Indigenous Women's Leadership Summit in Vancouver, BC. After this event a workshop was held for the WAWC board and membership to share some of the learnings.
Finding Our Faces
Book and History Project
As a way to document the history of the Whitehorse Indian Mission School, we brought survivors together to identify the people in the pictures then compiled this into a book.
The Department of Education purchased these books to use in grade 5 curriculum.
Books are available free of charge for Whitehorse Indian Mission School survivors and their descendents or may be purchased for $25 through our office or Mac's Fireweed.
