SCO is working with southern Nations in exploring traditional forms of Dakota and Anishinaabe governance, including looking at how to integrate traditional knowledge into transforming and strengthening governance.

The Nation Rebuilding Program Team launched an online survey to engage and seek input. The 13-question survey asks citizens of the 34 southern First Nations to identify their priority areas, aspects of traditional governance, and information to guide project direction.

The survey is open until March 3, 2023. You can complete the survey here.
