OUR ACTIONS

Our actions have two very specific objectives:

  1. Giving hope to Indigenous youth so they can reach their full potential and open up to the world by taking pride in being Aboriginal.
  2. Fostering well-being by encouraging communities to adopt healthy lifestyles by taking inspiration from the holistic health model of Aboriginal culture.

Here are some examples of the actions carried out by Puamun Meskenu:

GIVING HOPE

Puamun works to develop a network of Aboriginal success models of all kinds in order to inspire youth through various actions:

Explaining the route of his models through short web video capsules;

Sending his models to visit native and immigrant schools and homes to tell their stories and interact with young people.

The organization develops educational materials:

To support and enrich its message to Aboriginal youth, educators and teachers, their families and other community members;

To educate non-aboriginal youth about Aboriginal culture and history in relation to Puamun models;

A network with partners is responsible for creating and maintaining close links with Aboriginal communities, educators and schools.

FOSTERING WELL-BEING

Challenge Each year, Puamun Meshkenu organizes the Stanley Vollant Challenge. This is a great walk to promote healthy lifestyles and the encounter between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people;

We support communities in the preparation of the Stanley Vollant Challenge in a variety of ways:

Encouraging them to create walking challenges between community members or groups;

Encouraging the creation of intercommunity challenges;

Providing promotional, explanatory and follow-up materials to communities (family and community notebooks);

By providing other resources to communities to develop healthy lifestyles.

Puamun participates in expeditions on the ancestral territory;

The organization produces informative material (audio and video capsules, notebooks, etc.) to raise awareness of the importance of healthy lifestyles.

PUAMUN MESHKENU'S BEGINNINGS

The Puamun Meshkenu organization was born from the Innu Meshkenu project, which began in 2010 and has had a fundamental impact on the lives of many Aboriginal youth through the organization of all of Quebec's Aboriginal communities.
