our new center
The big project
Now that Kina8at has land and its first installations, we are working on the big project
On May 21, 2018, we were able to say "Home at last!" through the purchase of a 400,000 square meter lakeside lot in La Conception, near Mont-Tremblant (Laurentian region, Quebec). We have been looking for this rare pearl for years and it has finaly come to us: extremely well located in the forest, with a beautiful lake for canoeing, lots of land for our constructions, hiking trails and tranquility.
The next steps:
Thanks to the invaluable help of donors and dozens of volunteers, we built four large prospector tents in the fall of 2018: two 10-person dormitories, a kitchen/diner and a tent for the teachings
This allows us to offer several activities on the spot, but under minimal conditions
We are now working hard to find the necessary funding for the construction of the cultural center we have always dreamed of
For example, your help will allow us to pay the architects and planners: our steps ahead
A little more about the project
The many people involved in the development of Kina8at are inhabited by a desire for reconciliation, healing and rapprochement between peoples. This impulse is rooted in the work of the organization's co-founders, Dominique Rankin and Marie-Josée Tardif, who have worked for Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people for several decades.
Their vision is to create a place where Kina8at could fully flourish and where more people can discover the immense wealth of Aboriginal cultures.
Aware of the distress experienced in many indigenous communities and the growing need for new generations to finally find their identity, our efforts patiently point to reconciliation in all its forms. In fact, the Kina8at project corresponds in many respects to the recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission that we have experienced in recent years in Canada.
Your financial contribution will enable Kina8at to build a center for the transmission of Aboriginal culture, while allowing Aboriginal people to regain the joy of life and pride of their ancestors.
