RRFNs Community Report

Manitou Rapids/Rainy River First Nations Family Law

“Rainy River First Nations will be starting its journey of freedom from a colonial system of legislative and policy controls over child and family services. The hope we have as Rainy River First Nations, is to define the coexistence envisioned by our forefathers who negotiated Treaty 3 on October 3, 1973. We realize our challenge is to modernize our traditional teachings, customs and traditions into a jurisdictional framework that ensures unfettered administration of a RRFNs law over child and family services that is designed, developed and endorsed by our people comprising Rainy River First Nations” – Chief Rob McGinnis

For more information please find below the first quarterly newsletter documenting this journey.
