Regional Priorities and Jurisdiction
Matawa Regional Priorities and Jurisdiction provides support and assistance to the Matawa First Nations in the areas of: regionial priorities, jurisdiction and governance, lands and resources, community engagement and capacity building, working group coordination including logistical support, research and information gathering, document preparation/distribution and government updates/current events.
It works closely and is directed by the Matawa Chiefs Council and Matawa community members. It also works with Matawa First Nation Management Program Managers in order to ensure an inclusive approach.
Together, the Matawa First Nations are planning and working towards implementing the “Mamow-Wecheekapawetahteeewin” (Unity Declaration) to ensure our land, air, water, Peoples and future generations are protecte by their inherent right of self-determination.
See more on the Mamow-Wecheekapawetahteewiin in the ‘Unity Declaration’ in ‘About us.’
Our communities are united in sharing in a common vision of being self-sufficient, self-governing Peoples within a healthy, thriving culture, living on our homelands that shall sustain us for all times.” —Mamow-Wecheekapawetahteewiin
