Request for Knowledge Keepers Services

Like Elders, Knowledge Keepers also play an important role in the preservation and maintenance of Saskatchewan First Nations cultures. Accordingly, SICC will continue to facilitate this process through Elders Services and the Elders Council to:
 
  • Provide cultural/spiritual advice and guidance;
  • Provide guidance on repatriation, cultural and language strategies and initiatives;
  • Assist in feasts, ceremonies and other events as required;
  • Guide and provide direction in the distribution of Birds of Prey items;
  • Maintain an Elders list by language groups and demographics;
  • Review the Terms of Reference for the Elders Council; and, 
  • Define protocols for the Elders Council role when called upon in accordance with the FSIN Convention Act and the SICC Act.
 
The SICC is continually in the process of identifying Knowledge Keepers within Saskatchewan First Nations communities. If you are or know of someone who is a Knowledge Keeper and would like to be identified as one with the SICC, contact us.
