The University of Saskatchewan’s College of Law has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations (FSIN) to advance legal reform in child welfare systems for First Nations communities. Under this MOU, USask and FSIN will pool their expertise to develop academic and community-led research for the betterment of First Nations children, youth, and families in Saskatchewan. USask also recently inaugurated its kihci-okâwîmâw askiy (Great Mother Earth in Plains Cree) Knowledge Centre, which will serve as a resource for Indigenous communities seeking information pertaining to land, resource management, training, and research partnerships. “We aspire to build a centre that works with and for Indigenous communities,” said kihci-okâwîmâw askiy Knowledge Centre Director Candice Pete-Cardoso.
