A Path Forward, Our 2021 Strategic Plan

The Robinson Huron Waawiindamaagewin (RHW) recognized the need to provide a forum to discuss and develop ideas and thoughts towards Treaty governance. The RHW Team coordinated a three-day strategic planning session with our Ogimaak in September of 2020.

The planning session provided a forum for our leaders to discuss and collaborate on treaty efforts. Our RHW team listened to our leaders and developed the RHW Strategic Plan 2021 to guide the work and direction of RHW. The Plan was presented to our RHW Ogimaak at the Winter 2021 RHW Chiefs Assembly and was successfully adopted.

Foundational discussions and direction was developed at our RHW planning session. Our Ogimaak and advisors developed a vision and mission for our RHW. They also developed some key priority strategy areas to foster Treaty governance:

Our Vision: We, the First Nations of Robinson Huron Waawiindamaagewin are healthy, thriving and self-sufficient communities exercising our inherent rights and jurisdiction in our Treaty territory according to Chi- Naaknigewin.

Our Mission: Our Mission of Robinson Huron Waawiindamaagewin is to implement our understanding of Chi-Naaknigewin as the Creator bestowed on us to enable Robinson Huron Waawiindamaagewin communities to grow, thrive and be healthy, self-determining, exercising our inherent rights and jurisdiction over our governance structures and processes.

Priority Strategies: Gimaakndaadwin (Governance); Gdizhtwaawin’naa (Our Way of Life); Mno Bimaadziwin (Community Health and Well Being); and G’da kiiminaa (Protection of the Land). Each of the priority strategies have been analyzed and action plans have been developed within the strategic plan.

The RHW leadership, advisors and staff contributed to a meaningful planning session. The session provided the team with guidance and direction to develop the formal strategic planning document. The final Strategic Plan 2021 can be found on our website. The RHW is happy to come to your community and share our plan and discuss Treaty governance and relationships.
