Julie Lys of Fort Smith #NWT & CANADIAN NURSES ASSOCIATION Commissioner on the delivery of health services in remote and northern communities

Julie Lys of Fort Smith NWT & CANADIAN NURSES ASSOCIATION Commissioner on the delivery of health services in remote and northern communities

"Health in aboriginal communities is about balance between mental, emotional, spiritual and physical health," said Julie Lys, one of the Commissioners and a nurse practitioner who personally delivers health-care services in Fort Smith, Northwest Territories. "Our current health-care system addresses physical and some mental health. But without understanding and addressing the core issues that affect all of these areas, we will not effectively be able to re-establish balance and improve the health status of Aboriginal people."


Commissioners will highlight the interventions and ideas proposed by roundtable participants via Twitter (@NtlCommission) throughout the day. The Commission will also post a synopsis of the day's discussions on its web site on Wednesday, March 28. A list of roundtable participants will also be posted at

In preparing its report, the Commission has adopted the "triple aim" framework developed by the Institute for Health Improvement that focuses on the themes of Better Health, Better Care and Better Value. This approach is being used effectively around the world because it addresses the three dimensions of care: the health of the population, the experience of care for individuals within the population, and the per capita cost of providing that care. The Commission will also add a Best Nursing component to their report.


All videos feature NEC Commissioner Julie Lys.

#Canada gets rare #reprimand from #UN for undermining right to #water #CDNpoli

For Immediate Release
March 22, 2012 (World Water Day)

Canada gets rare reprimand from UN for undermining right to water

Canada has been chastised on World Water Day for undermining the right to water by the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the human right to safe drinking water and sanitation. The Rapporteur openly criticized Canada for "proposing the removal of an explicit reference to the right to water and sanitation for all from the first draft of the 'Rio+20 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development' outcome document."

The Council of Canadians is in New York this week for the session on Rio+20 where this story emerged and is available for comment.

This is an extremely rare departure from protocol and diplomatic language.  The fact that Rapporteur Catarina de Albuquerque felt compelled to name Canada underscores the extremes to which the Canadian government is going in its controversial effort to weaken the legally binding UN recognition of the right to water and sanitation.  It further demonstrates how increasingly isolated Canada is on the world stage.

"States are wasting their time on re-negotiating their own decisions rather than moving forward to implement the right to water and sanitation for all," she cautioned. "We should be marking World Water Day with progress, not debating semantics and certainly not back-tracking on these issues."

The full text of the Rapporteur's media release on this is available from the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights.

Two Free Workshops by W.A.M.P. in #YZF #NWT

Two Free Workshops from Western Arctic Moving Pictures  in Yellowknife

This workshop will explore traditional conventions as well as investigate the methods of successive animation. Participants will engage in hands on animating.
Time: 1:00 - 4:00 pm March 31st- April 1
Instructor: Aidan Cartwright
Location:Prince of Wales Northern Heritage Centre Auditorium

Saturday –A brief explanation of where animation came from followed by some examples of different animating styles and techniques. Participants will choose one of several animation technique options and will work to complete these before the end of the day with help from instructor.
Sunday –A quick recap of the previous day. Participants who need to complete their previous works will be given time. Those who have completed their works will be introduced to the principles of successive animation and will participate in a large collaborative successive animation.

Minimum enrollment required, if there are not enough participants this class will be re-scheduled.

This course will explore the topic of classic cinematic conventions through discussion, demonstration and practice. Participants will be assigned an exercise on the course topic in order to later view and discuss their work. The video works produced are not intended to be completed videos, but rather a record of practical exploration; a "video sketchbook".

Course instructor: Joel Maillet is a local freelance filmmaker who has been running video workshops in the north since his arrival in 2008. His experience comes from several years of working in the film industry on the East Coast after graduating from NSCAD University with a major study in filmmaking.

Washington, DC 20007

The Arctic Institute
seeks to establish itself as an authoritative, interdisciplinary, and independent source for information and in-depth analysis about the developments in the High North. The Institute was founded in 2011 and currently aims to bring together scholars and researchers to build a growing stock of knowledge and expertise on the Arctic region. In contrast to existing platforms for Arctic affairs, The Arctic Institute is not affiliated with or sponsored by any of the Arctic states.

The Arctic Institute is convinced that the developments in the Arctic will have lasting ramifications for international relations, international law, international climate change policy, international trade, and international human rights. The Arctic's strategic location will not only influence government policies, but also affect strategic business decisions and global economic development over the coming decades. The Arctic Institute believes that an interdisciplinary approach to Arctic studies, bringing together researches and experts from a variety of disciplines, is key to fully understanding the ongoing transformation of the region and making progress towards sustainable Arctic development.

Call For Volunteers in #YZF! The "Long John Jamboree" Needs Your Help!

Call For Volunteers! The Long John Jamboree Needs Your Help! #yzf

Longjohn Jamboree Logo 4C circleFolks, it's crunch time for the Long John Jamboree.  The event organizing team has been working hard for months pulling this thing together - and we're now working pretty much around the clock on final preparations.  We've secured many sponsors big and small and we've organized a bunch of great events, but we're short on volunteers.  

The Board is concerned that unless we add to the volunteer ranks we'll burn out those Yellowknifers who have been kind enough to put their names forward so far.  If you've been in YK for a while, you know that this is a recurring problem and is partly to blame for the demise of Raven Mad Daze and Caribou Carnival.  Yellowknife deserves a premier winter festival perhaps more than any other Canadian city.  We simply cannot let the Jamboree suffer the same fate as the Caribou Carnival.  So please, even if you only have a few hours to spare from March 20th to the 25th, get in touch with our event organizer, Nancy MacNeill (, and she'll find a suitable volunteer role for you.

Just to give you an idea of the potential of the Long John Jamboree, here are a few highlights:

  • De Beers Inspired Ice: NWT Ice Carving Championships (a NICA sanctioned event)
  • Kids Tent - crafts, magic shows, carnival games, etc.
  • Dene Hand Games Tournament
  • Cultural programming from the YKDFN
  • Music tent with great local bands, storytellers, fiddlers, etc.
  • Cabane a Sucre
  • Helicopter rides by Trinity Helicopters 
  • Beer Garden
  • Ugly Truck and Dog Contest
  • Terriers and Tiaras: canine fashion show and talent contest
  • SPCA skijoring race
  • Snowmobile races adjacent to the Jamboree site
  • Snow King's Castle programming throughout the weekend
  • Heritage photo booth
  • Frozen Eyes photography exhibit
  • Ice Fishing outings
  • Kite-skiing clinics
  • Flaunt Yer Skivvies long john fashion show
  • Snow King Cup 4 on 4 pond hockey tournament
  • Erebus and Terror concert on Friday night 
  • Oil Drum fires on Friday night
  • Long John Decathlon/YK Chamber of Commerce team challenge - a series of ten northern-themed contests
  • Server relay
  • Snowboard Rail Jam competition
  • Artists Market
  • Abominable Snow Race - YK Multi-Sport Club 13km race on the Dettah Ice Road

As you can see.  We have a lot planned.  To pull it all off in a manner befitting the awesomeness of our city we need a lot of help.

I'll try to add links later to each of the event bullets so that you can go directly to the info page from our website.  For now, check out  And please, PLEASE sign up as a volunteer if you have the time to spare.  With your help we'll ensure that this event has a life beyond this year.

One final detail: site setup will be happening from Wednesday to Thursday - day and night.  We'll be erecting tents, marking off parking areas, etc.  Then we'll be tearing it all down on Sunday night and Monday.  We need a small army of folks to help lighten the load.  During the event proper, volunteers will be helping us administer the individual events/tents, providing information to visitors, etc.

6. Canadian Roots Exchange - Exchanges Unite Us

Ever thought that a week long road trip could change our country? We did. Still do, actually.

We are the Canadian Roots Exchange - a week long road trip that takes First Nations, Inuit, Metis and non-Indigenous Canadians around Canada's provinces to visit and learn from our country's Indigenous communities. Together we engage in the teachings, triumphs and daily realities of Inuit, First Nations and Metis communities in Canada. Most importantly, as we travel, eat and live together we work to break down stereotypes, open a dialogue, and build honest relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people living on this land.

Please feel free to pass this on to aboriginal and non aboriginal youth ages 18-30 who may be interested.  The NWT, Denendeh exchanges will take place June 15-25 and August 14-24.

Can you imagine in your community?...

Community and household chicken coops, vegetable gardens behind every house, market gardens that provide meaningful local employment (and produce 45 tonnes of food in a season!), tipi-shaped greenhouses, dairy goats used to provide milk for making cheese and soap...

What do all of these ideas have in common?   ...They are all examples of innovative projects that have been created and implemented by people in northern Manitoba communities through their provincial "Northern Healthy Foods Initiative".  Check out the following link for more details on this inspiring and creative program that includes many ideas that would be relevant and applicable for the NWT:

Northern Healthy Foods Initiative

This past week, Shannon felt very fortunate to have the opportunity to travel to Winnipeg to attend a conference and workshops that highlighted projects to increase local food production and food security in rural, northern and remote Manitoba communities.  Shannon was very grateful to the Manitoba Northern Healthy Foods Initiative and Health Canada for suggesting she attend, and providing financial support to make it possible.

The primary objectives in attending were to learn from Manitoba's efforts in the realm of local food production and food security, and to build links with northern Manitoba communities.  This learning and the connections made will continue to support the growing momentum in local food production that is happening here in the NWT!


On another note, if anyone has clear plastic salad/lettuce/spinach containers, we are happily collecting them to help with the up-coming growing season. Please wash, and bring to the Ecology North Office. If you have any questions contact us at

Long johns, toque, parka, yellow snow -- these were some of the strange new words I learned when I first arrived.

Winnipeg Free Press - PRINT EDITION

Canada's 'space' is sweet release

Long johns, toque, parka, yellow snow -- these were some of the strange new words I learned when I first arrived. They were not Canadian desserts, as I realized later. They were essential to being "winterized" -- uncharted waters for someone from a tropical country with two seasons, hot and hotter. Being able to laugh at ourselves kept our sanity in this strange and frigid land.

For the first two years, I trembled whenever the phone rang -- it could be one of the hundreds of places where we have applied for jobs. Answering in straight English could be intimidating. Like many other new immigrants, we couldn't find jobs. Our stack of rejection letters grew by the inch monthly. We could not even get work cleaning tables due to the lack of "Canadian experience." We both worked on assembly lines at various factories, late shifts to make ends meet.

I also found myself volunteering, working without pay to build up Canadian experience. I volunteered at the provincial Fisheries Branch, spreading the word to the new immigrants about the rules to harvest fish, and ended up with a short-term paying job.

It led to another contract job at the federal Department of Fisheries and Oceans, helping to spread the word on ocean conservation to the Inuit communities in the Arctic.

How does a science teacher from a country near the equator transition to designing communications materials for Inuit in the high arctic?

What did I know about the Inuit? I started with nothing. Hours of research in libraries, consulting scientists who worked in the Arctic, conducting interviews in Inuvik, Iqaluit and Yellowknife, studying Inuit lifestyle and respecting their traditions, even enduring extreme wind chill values, must have paid off.

Somehow the research skills from my past life were transferable. Two years of working for the federal government opened a new world of possibilities.

THE NAVAJO RESPONSE TO CRIME: Restorative and Reparative Justice - Chief Justice of the Navajo Nation

The Honorable Robert Yazzie Chief Justice of the Navajo Nation
Prepared for the Session
Concepts of Restorative and Reparative Justice
The American Judicature Society San Diego, California
November 2-3, 1997
A few years ago, I did a presentation on traditional Navajo justice to judges from five western states. After the talk, two state judges went outside. One said to the other, "What did you think of Chief Justice Yazzie's description of Navajo common law?" The other judge laughed and replied, "He didn't mention staking people to ant hills!" Obviously the judges saw too many Western movies.
Unfortunately, there is a popular stereotype that Indian justice is rough justice; that Indians used punishments such as staking people to ant hills, running them through a gauntlet of people armed with clubs, or stringing an offender (usually shown in the movies as a White offender) up in the sun to bake. That is an unfortunate stereotype. One of the reasons I want to speak at this important conference is that people such as myself, as Indian leaders, need to do more to educate the general American public about Indian ways.
The main issue posed for this conference is, "What is the judicial role in sentencing?" This session is designed to address restorative and reparative principles. "Restorative" is defined to mean "the process for renewing damaged personal and community relationships." "Reparative" is defined to mean "the process of making things right for those affected by an offender's behavior." In other words, how can we help victims? We use only one word for both ideas: peacemaking. The Navajo term is Hozhooji Naat'aanii, and while it is difficult to completely translate its concepts into English, I will simply translate it as "talking things out in a good way."
Given that the overall topic of this conference is sentencing, I will focus on how we use peacemaking in sentencing or to handle a case. There is a copy of the Uniform Sentencing Policy the Navajo Nation Judicial Conference adopted in August 1994 in your conference materials. We believe that the policy is unique, because it incorporates restorative and reparative justice concepts. We know that it is unique because it incorporates traditional Navajo concepts on how to respond to crime.
I will describe the policy's concepts of "talking things out," the "traditional probation officer," and how we use Navajo peacemaking before charges are filed, at the time of plea, prior to sentencing, and after sentencing.
