By now, most Canadians and many beyond our shores have become aware of Attawapiskat’s tragic circumstances. Unfortunately, too many are not yet aware of other First Nations' communities hurting even more critically, like PIKANGIKUM. Pikangikum will continue to hold “the suicide capital of the world” title until its mortal problems are effectively and comprehensively addressed. Pikangikum needs 200 safe, warm serviced houses. For that they need portable sawmills so they can harvest their own timber and cut their own lumber. They need potable water and waste management in every home. They need cold climate agriculture with gardens, greenhouses, poultry and farm animals. Enter Frontiers Foundation/Operation Beaver. Pikangikum Working Group, with the support of Pikangikum Chief and Council, has asked us to be the Implementing Partner for a multi-year project involving all of the above.
