The National Indigenous Survivors of Child Welfare Network is pleased to announce the interim appointment of Elaine Kicknosway as president of the National Indigenous Survivors of Child Welfare Network. Elaine is a co-founder of our Network and served as Vice President previously.
The Network is pleased to welcome Leroy Bennett of Sagamok Anishnabe First Nation as an incoming Director on our Board. Leroy has served as the Network’s elder and we are pleased that he has accepted our invitation to join the board as well.
During this transitional period, the Network is working to move its governance process towards an Indigenous governance structure that is non-hierarchical. In the coming months, we will be recruiting more board members to fulfill this vision.
We look forward to continuing to work together for justice and healing for all Indigenous child welfare survivors.
