About Keewatinohk Inniniw Minoayawin

Keewatinohk Inniniw Minoayawin Inc. was funded in its formation by the federal government (FNIHB/ISC) beginning in 2017 and framed as MKO’s Clinical Care Transformation initiative. Since that time, and via partnerships, we have increased diagnostic care physician and specialist services; pediatrician and clinical psychology services to children via Jordan’s Principle, and mental wellness services. There is much more to be done including the scoping work to determine the depth and breadth of health and wellness transformation – and how far we must go together to ensure equitable and safe care for all First Nations people.


We are here for all people.

Tomorrow, May 10th, is Bear Witness Day, a day of remembrance, reflection, and action in honour of Jordan River Anderson and his legacy of Jordans Principle.

Jordans Principle, named after Jordan, a First Nations child who tragically passed away at the age of five without ever experiencing a day in a family home, embodies the commitment to ensure that all First Nations children receive the essential services they need, when they need them, without discrimination.

Following a decade-long struggle at the Tribunal, the First Nations Child and Family Caring Society presented Jordan River Anderson’s tragic case and a legacy of racism as evidence to conclusively establish the presence of discrimination. In response, the federal government was mandated to rectify the situation, leading to the issuance of the first of several compliance orders by the CHRT on May 10th, 2016. This date holds additional significance as it coincides with Spirit Bear’s birthday, the beloved mascot and emblem of Jordan’s Principle and the tribunals decision.

Bear Witness Day serves as a reminder of our shared responsibility to advocate for the rights and well-being of First Nations children, youth, and their families. Let us come together to honour Jordans memory, support Jordans Principle, and work towards reconciliation.

On behalf of Keewatinohk Inniniw Minoayawin , we extend our warmest wishes to all Indigenous nurses within the First Nations communities we support and beyond! 

Were thrilled to announce that Minister of Health, Seniors, and Long-Term Care for Manitoba, Uzoma Asagwara, has officially proclaimed May 8th as Indigenous Nurses Day for the Province of Manitoba. This recognition is a testament to the invaluable contributions Indigenous nurses make to healthcare every day. 
In celebration, were excited to share some exciting news! The Manitoba Indigenous Nurses Inc. (MINI) has been invited to present at the U of M Pathways to Indigenous Nursing Education Program (PINE) on May 8th. Representing both KIM Inc. and MINI, Mirenda Sutherland works with the WRHA as a public health nurse from Nisichawayasihk Cree Nation.  

Zoom Link for the presentation: https://umanitoba.zoom.us/j/65390730489?pwd=WG5BcXZMZ0J1U0IvRVBUZXNjOU1UUT09

If youre interested in delving deeper into Mirendas remarkable journey and understanding the significant impact of Indigenous nurses, take a moment to watch this video. In this video, Jennie Russell, Public Health Nurse with Street Connections, and Mirenda Sutherland, Public Health Nurse with Population Public Health, candidly discuss their roles, motivations for pursuing nursing, and the profound ways they integrate their lived experiences into their professional endeavors. You can find the video, produced by the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority, at the following link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-L61VYVPQls
