Our community has over 250+ children residing within the boundaries of Rolling River First Nation of which 120+ are school aged from nursery to grade 12. We have physical activities geared for the whole community, such as weight loss challenges, walk 4 health programs, community clean up, to name a few, and the support from the community is always great but we need these areas where community members can easily access opportunities that will benefit their overall health. Our community, as do other Anishinabe communities, faces health related challenges such as diabetes, obesity, COPD, at a higher rate than non-Anishinabe communities.

Abuse, Indifference And A Young Life Discarded.
This report tells the story of one such tragedy. It examines the life and death of Paige, an Aboriginal girl from British Columbia who never received the nurturing or protection she deserved. As a result, she died of an overdose shortly after her 19th birthday in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside.
Manitoba’s family services minister was warned a while ago that children in care were being kept in jail longer than necessary because of a shortage of appropriate foster care spots.
In an interview with The Canadian Press, Kerri Irvin-Ross said the government has been working on the issue, but there is no quick fix. Kids who end up in police custody have complex needs and often can’t be released into any foster home, she said.
Irvin-Ross refused to say if she was concerned that keeping kids in jail longer than necessary was a violation of their charter rights, as some have alleged.
