Shannen's Dream

Make a Difference

Shannen Koostachin of Attawapiskat First Nation had a dream - safe and comfy schools and culturally based education for First Nations children and youth. She worked tirelessly to try to convince the federal government to give First Nations children a proper education before tragically passing away at the age of 15 years old in 2010. Now it is our turn to carry her dream forward.

Make a difference

Find out how you can give First Nations children the same chance to grow up safely at home, get a good education, be healthy, and proud of their cultures.
