Creating Independence and Self-Determination
Laws and Governance
Nisichawayasihk Cree Nation is developing governance and laws to strengthen its independence and the ability for its people to determine their future in a way that is based in Cree culture and traditions.
Aski Pumenikewin (Land Code)
Why the Land Code is Important?
The Land Code will allow NCN to shift away from the Indian Act and Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada (AANDC) paternalism of our NCN Reserve Lands. It will also Strengthen Land Governance by establishing legal and administrative frameworks to allow us to start managing our Lands ourselves. This will also speed up economic development processes and other development on NCN Lands.
