Our Youth

aboutWhen we talk about developing the skills and obtaining the education required to build our community, to make it viable, to achieve our goal of self-sufficiency, we are really talking about our youth.

It is the youth who will have the real opportunities to acquire advanced educations and very specialized training in those areas which will contribute to the well-being of our communities.

In a very real sense the future of our community belongs to our youth.

We the youth of the Cree Nation of Ouje-Bougoumou, are determined to build a future for our youth upon the foundation of our faith in God, our Creator and upon the culture and traditions passed down to us by our ancestors and elders.

We will promote the healing and spiritual well-being of every individual and family member in our community. We will embrace our responsibility to inspire hope in our youth and to encourage every youth in Ouje-Bougoumou to pursue the best possible education. Every Dream is Possible!

Together in the spirit of mutual respect and honour, we make a commitment to one another and to our community; to help one another be strong and to lift one another up when we fall. We will protect our land, water, wildlife and natural resources, so that our generation and those to follow may continue to benefit from our way of life.

We are confident that our generation and the generations to come, will be a stronger community and Nation!
