Announcement Regarding 2017 trip:
It is with deep regret that we must inform you of the cancellation of this year's Reconciliation Trip to Kitchenuhmaykoosib Inninuwug (K.I.). Due to recent wave of suicide attempts in K.I. and the neighbouring community of Wapekeka, the decision has been made to postpone the trip until further notice. As the community remains in shock over these recent events they ask for time and privacy to heal and recover from these tragedies. Our thoughts and prayers are with them.
We regret having to withdraw a trip that is considered by all those involved in years past as a life changing experience for both attendees and community members. Our work with the community continues however and several important initiatives directed towards KI youth and education, which we will share with you shortly, will move forward.
We thank you for your interest and willingness to donate your time, and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you. As our valued friend we will continue to update you on the situation in K.I., next year's potential for a Reconciliation Trip and other projects within the community.
Reconciliation Trip 2018:
Experiencing the 3rd world in Canada
The Youth of Kitchenuhmaykoosib Inninuwug living in the remote Boreal forest of Northwestern Ontario invite you in their homes on an all-inclusive trip.
The youth & their community graciously open their homes to 25 Canadians and look forward to:
• An honest dialogue on their living conditions
• Sharing their pride in the beauty of their culture set in their pristine land on Big Trout Lake
• Making the invisible visible through an unforgettable act of friendship &reconciliation
.... More than anything, the youth want to create an opportunity to showcase:
their positive leadership and the spirit of their community to shine through.
