The IDHC “Honour Your Life” conference in motion gathered over 150 front line workers together for two days of powerful, interactive and culture-infused sessions.
Our goal was to help front line staff to add to their “bundles” and send them home with tools, activities and teachings that will support their work combating diabetes in their communities. We heard from community members who told their own personal diabetes story and from Regional Chief Isadore Day who shared his story of making this disease a government priority.
In partnership with the National Aboriginal Diabetes Association (NADA), and the Nanaandawewigamig First Nations Health and Social Secretariat of Manitoba – Partners for Engagement and Knowledge Exchange (PEKE), the Saint Elizabeth First Nations, Inuit and Métis Program is excited to announce the upcoming webinar to meet your learning needs.
This webinar is available at no cost to First Nations, Inuit and Métis communities from across the country.

Guest blog post today from Brittany Ann one of our student Yoga instructors in Moose Cree First Nation on teaching yoga classes to young women in her community:
Today I had the most rewarding experience teaching yoga to 14 young women from grades 6-8 at a First Nations public school. Initially, I was nervous because this was only my second ever yoga class that I instructed. I am still in awe about how respectful the girls were to each other’s yoga experience.
