The Strong Nations community has been growing! Unfortunately, due to this growth, we have also been experiencing issues with our newsletter. Some people have not been receiving the newsletter altogether! We apologize for the inconvenience and have moved on to another way to send our news out to everyone.

Proceeds from Secret Path will be donated to The Gord Downie Secret Path Fund for Truth and Reconciliation via The National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation (NCTR) at The University of Manitoba.
