Mamawe Ota Askihk
Mamawe Ota Askihk is Cree for“Sharing life together here on Earth”. What started out as an annual festival at Sandy-Saulteaux Spiritual Centre, bringing together Indigenous and non-Indigenous people to reclaim the homegrown, the homespoken and the homemade, has become a series of gatherings that are closely connected to the land and the seasons here,which make space for relationship and for skill-building. Mamawe Ota Askihk events are hosted by Sandy-Saulteaux Spiritual Centre and organized with community partners who share our vision.
Ministry Learning Circles
We are at the leading edge of the self-governing process happening in the Indigenous communities of faith in The United Church of Canada. We are training the emerging leadership that will guide the way forward and live out Indigenous community aspirations.
Learning Circles in our Ministry Training program are open to guest learners who would like to join our students for a week-long continuing education opportunity.
