Stikine Wholistic Working Group

SWWG and their approach has changed the agenda of the Nations”, Jody Nishima

The Stikine Wholistic Working Group was created in February 2009 and is committed to building healthy families through engaging our communities and restoring traditional practices. The aim of the group is to develop a system created by the communities in the Stikine to support our families in their homes and improve our childrens' success in school, community and life. The working group consists of members from Taku River Tlingit First Nation (Atlin), Daylu Dena Council (Lower Post), Dease River First Nation (Good Hope Lake), Iskut First Nation (Iskut), and the Tahltan Band (Telegraph Creek/Dease Lake).

Imagine a world where we build on the core strengths of children, their families, and communities, to create dignity, belonging, and justice for all.
