2021 Online AGA

The 2021 AGA is approaching!
The AGA is in an online Zoom format so you’ll be able to connect from anywhere in the world to watch, listen and learn.
Like in-person AGAs, while the majority of the day is open, there is a section in the afternoon that is for Ktunaxa Citizens and Ktunaxa Nation Council and Community staff only. We thank you for your understanding and cooperation on this.
Check back here later this week for the Zoom link for the meeting as well as the agenda for the day.

Citizen Input Needed!

A message from Keith Clement – Citizen Engagement Coordinator

Kiʔsuʔk kyukyit,

The Constitution Working Group (CWG) was assembled in June of 2017.

The CWG, with the support of the Citizen Engagement team, is in the early stages of its engagement with Ktunaxanin̓tik (Ktunaxa Citizens) regarding the draft Ktunaxa Constitution.

You are invited to participate in a short survey.

Here is the link to the Engagement Survey.

This short survey will give the CWG a better understanding of how much you already know about the Ktunaxa Constitution and how you would like to receive information.

The survey will require approximately 5-7 minutes to complete.

Participation is strictly voluntary.

If you choose to participate in this survey, please take your time to answer the questions the best you can.

Everyone that completes the survey will be entered into a draw to win one of three $100 prizes.  You must be at least 15 years of age to participate and must be Ktunaxa enrolled in one of the four Ktunaxa bands in Canada or are eligible to be a citizen under the Ktunaxa Citizenship code.  The closing date for the survey is August 27, 2021.

Here is the link to the Engagement Survey.

If you require additional information or have questions, please contact me at the number listed below or you may email me at keith.clement@ktunaxa.org.

Thank you for your time and consideration.  It is very much appreciated.

The Ktunaxa Nation Council is postponing the 2021 Annual General Assembly (AGA), to allow for further preparation by the sectors and to give time and space to Ktunaxa Citizens.
The new date of the AGA is September 29, 2021. It will be in an online format.
Ktunaxa Citizen participation in the AGA is a priority, and the extra time to prepare will ensure the AGA is inclusive of our Communities and Citizens.
Those who email aga@ktunaxa.org will receive informational materials ahead of the AGA, and will be invited to access the new Ktunaxa online engagement portal after it launches fully this summer. The portal will feature project reports, multi-media highlights, links to other resources of interest, and opportunities for comment and discussion.
While COVID-19 cases are dropping within ʔamakʔis Ktunaxa, the virus and its variants continue to pose a risk to Indigenous communities in British Columbia.
The health and well-being of all Ktunaxa Citizens is the guiding principle in the decision to continue with an online delivery.
We thank you for your understanding and look forward to seeing and hearing from you during the 2021 Ktunaxa Nation Annual General Assembly.
Please email aga@ktunaxa.org so we can reach out with updates and announcements.

Bringing The Salmon Home Festival – May 10 to 16

The Indigenous-led public engagement launch of Bringing the Salmon Home: The Columbia River Salmon Reintroduction Initiative in mid-May 2021 offers a vision, an invitation and a shared affirmation to work together to look at all opportunities to bring the salmon back to the upper Columbia River region.
Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities are invited to show their transboundary support by organizing Bringing the Salmon Home related events from the headwaters to the mouth of river. This may include holding local paddle journeys, or sending in stories, songs, videos, messages and artwork that can be shared through the CRSRI website and social media channels.
Most activities will be planned as virtual events in this week of public engagement outreach. Some on-location events may be possible, if COVID-19 limitations allow. The new CRSRI website will be the online portal to the daily line-up of workshops and special events.
Join in discussions and special events with leaders and members of the Syilx Okanagan Nation, Ktunaxa Nation, Secwépemc Nation, Canada and British Columbia and diverse other Tribes and communities who care about the salmon and this great river.
The voices of youth, elders, knowledge keepers, scientists, poets, artists and musicians will be featured. Schools, libraries, museums and galleries are invited to organize and cross-promote Bringing the Salmon Home themed events.
The festival will feature many Ktunaxa presenters and knowledge holders from all Ktunaxa communities. You can learn more about the festival at https://columbiariversalmon.ca/event-page/#salmon-festival
