(Treaty 6 Territory, Saskatoon, SK) – The Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations supports First Nation communities during times of celebration and times of crisis. At this point, the FSIN has not received direction from a First Nation community to support a call for a state of emergency.

Last week, the FSIN Executive received direction from Chiefs-in-Assembly to organize a youth suicide prevention gathering to develop a comprehensive First Nation driven response to the continued trauma faced by the communities. The initial steps to plan this event have begun.
