This Will Be The First Ever, Gathering of Indigenous Elder's in Canada Representing First Nations, Metis, and Inuit Elder's.

The Purpose For An Elder's Gathering Is So The Elders Can Come Together And Take Their Rightful Place As Advisors, Teachers, & Leaders. There Have Been Provincial Gatherings of Elders In The Past But Historically, There Has Never Been A National Gathering Of Elders Throughout Canada As A Nation With All Indigenous Groups.

The Gathering Is The Need For Elders Thoughout Canada To Have Inter-social And Community Links That Bind Them Together As A Nation. It Allows Them To Intermingle With Like-minded, Like-aged Individuals And Their Families, To Reveal Common Grounds That Strengthen Those Links. It Will Offer The Opportunity To Interface With Youth, Which Helps To Mitigate The Generation Gap, And Allows The Younger Generations To Demonstrate Respect, Regard, and Honor For Their Elders.

Goals For This Event Is To Build & Strengthen The Gap Of The Education Between Indigenous and Non-Indigenous Communities, To Promote Environmental Responsibility and Sustainability Through Cultural Knowledge, To Bring Indigenous People Together To Celebrate Canada's 150th Birthday, To Work With Schools and Universities To Build A Bridge On Knowledge On The Importance Of Indigenous Knowledge, and The Discussion Of Traditional Knowledge Frameworks.
