Congratulations

Congratulations to Dr. Rosie Mosquito, esteemed member of Bearskin Lake First Nation, on receiving an Honorary Doctor of Humane Letters from Lakehead University! Rosie’s leadership journey is truly inspiring; she broke barriers as the first female Chief in the Western part of Nishnawbe Aski Nation and continued her influential work as the Executive Director of Oshki-Pimache-O-Win: The Wenjack Education Institute from 2004 to 2018.

Rosie’s dedication and visionary leadership were instrumental in the passing of the Indigenous Institutes Act in 2017, a landmark achievement that secured recognition and support for Indigenous Institutes across Ontario. Her tireless commitment to advancing Indigenous education has left a lasting mark on the NAN communities.

Join us in celebrating Rosie’s well-deserved recognition and her enduring contributions to education and community empowerment.

National Day of Awareness for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls

Today, on the National Day of Awareness for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls, we at Oshki-Pimache-O-Win stand in solidarity with the families, and communities affected by this ongoing tragedy. Today, we wear red and display red dresses to honor and remember the lives of the Indigenous women, girls, and two-spirit people who have been taken from us.

The REDress Project reminds us that these are not just statistics; they are daughters, sisters, and mothers whose absence is deeply felt. Together, we advocate for justice, healing, and change.
