ULethbridge, Lambton embark on collaborative projects with Indigenous community partners

Two postsecondary institutions have announced new collaborations and projects with their Indigenous community partners. The University of Lethbridge and the Kainai Nation’s Blood Tribe Department of Health have embarked on an initiative—named Sokkinakia’pi or “all that has to do with healing or health”—to build on existing Kainai health services by identifying the resources and opportunities they will need over the next decade. Lambton College and Aamjiwnaang First Nation have initiated a project focused on biodiversity and the preservation of traditional knowledge. The project aims to give Aamjiwnaang the ability to create pollinator or food and medicine gardens and potentially establish an Indigenous Plant Nursery. It could also serve as a blueprint for addressing biodiversity challenges in other First Nations communities in Ontario.
