The Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations Executive wants to congratulate the six students from Saskatchewan First Nations schools for their participation in the Canada Wide Science Fair 2017.

“Education is the key to building healthier people and communities,” said FSIN Chief Bobby Cameron. “We at the FSIN are proud to see these students acting as ambassadors for their community, and for Treaty education.”

Jordan Knife, Reacko Sasakamoose, Taylen Sylvestre, Madison Kishayinew, Creedance Bird, and Jenae Agecoutay from Ahtahkakoop, Birch Narrows and Peepeekisis First Nations earned their spots in the Canada-Wide Science Fair after receiving top marks in the 9th Annual Saskatchewan First Nations Science Fair in March.

Each project examined an aspect of Indigenous knowledge and teachings with the help of elders from their communities.

“They’ve made friends from all over the country, and the skills they’ve developed in this process, including public speaking, reasoning, and how to test their observations of the world, will serve them the rest of their lives,” said Chief Cameron.

The FSIN represents 74 First Nations in Saskatchewan. The Federation is committed to honouring the spirit and intent of the Treaties, as well as the promotion, protection and implementation of the Treaty promises that were made more than a century ago.
