The Fisher River Elders Gathering in Winnipeg was an extraordinary three-day event that brought together elders from the Fisher River Cree Nation, as well as elders from other reserves and communities. This gathering not only provided ample time for meaningful conversations and connections but also created a platform for intergenerational and intertribal dialogue.

The diverse representation of elders added a valuable perspective to the discussions, ensuring a broader range of experiences and knowledge was shared. It was inspiring to witness the unity and understanding that blossomed among attendees as they exchanged wisdom and stories from their respective communities. This gathering truly became a meeting ground for collaboration and a catalyst for positive change.

The three-day duration of the event allowed for a comprehensive exploration of the Fisher River Child and Family Law, as well as updates on initiatives from Chief and Council. It also provided ample time for the youth from Fisher River High School to actively participate and absorb the wisdom shared by the elders. The commitment to hosting such an inclusive and engaging event was evident in the attendance of elders from both on and off reserve, showcasing the shared dedication to the well-being of children and families across different communities.
