First Peoples Voices

About

Less than 500 years ago, the only people living in Canada were the First Peoples. The Indigenous people of this land have a rich history and unique relationship with our country, one that includes chapters of hurt but also new chapters of healing.

Together, through tangible acts of love and hope-filled testimony, we can be a blessing to Indigenous communities across the land! Partner with us today.

Blessed to be a Blessing

January 26, 2023

My recent visit to the James Smith Cree Nation reminded me of how God works through each of us. Your prayers and support to First Peoples Voices enabled us to show and share the love of God to a community still reeling from the mass murders in September.

Finding Truth in Reconciliation

April 11, 2022

This month has been extremely profound. I sat glued to my computer and watched reporters in Rome cover the historic exchange between Pope Francis and Indigenous delegates from across Turtle Island (North America). Although the official apology was long-overdue, Indigenous trailblazers continued to communicate ‘it’s never too late to do the right thing’. The Pope’s detailed apology was another milestone on this collective path to reconciliation.

Orange Shirt Day – Every Child Matters

September 30, 2020

On the first day at residential school, survivor Phyllis Jack Webstad wore her shiny new orange shirt, bought by her grandmother. She loved it! However, it was taken from her as a six-year old girl at the school. September 30th was chosen because it is the time of year in which children were taken from their homes and forced onto a plane, bus or truck and sent to residential schools.
