SAI Memengwaa Program

“Memengwaa is the Anishinaabe word for butterfly. Butterfly survives a metamorphosis through cycles of nurturance and protection, supporting their ability to develop skills and strength, resulting in the ability to spread their wings and fly. This program is designed to support youth as they transition into adulthood, nurturing their special gifts and talents while supporting them to learn life skills.” Shawenim Abinoojii Inc. has recently purchased 126/140 Alfred Avenue, an abandoned building in the North Point Douglas community. Our vision is to revitalize this apartment to become affordable housing for youth and young adults, including young families, impacted by the Child Welfare System. We hope to reinvigorate life into this beautiful property while providing a critical resource for our young people. Construction is now underway.

Southeast Collegiate

Southeast Collegiate History

Southeast College was established as a private high school (Grades 10 to 12) in 1995-96 by The Southeast Tribal Council, incorporated as Southeast Resource Development Council Corporation (SERDC). The SERDC includes the communities of Bloodvein First Nation, Little Grand Rapids, Brokenhead, Pauingassi First Nation, Buffalo Point First Nation, Black River First Nation, Hollow Water, Berens River and Poplar River. Many of these SERDC communities lacked high schools and from this need arose the vision for a centrally located education facility. Situated within the city of Winnipeg and nestled on approximately 40 acres, the purchase of the former Nazarene College seemed like the ideal opportunity and location. SEC is unlike any other school in Canada. It is a unique facility that not only educates its students, but also houses the student body on site while nourishing the culture of First Nations in many of its day to day operations.
