A group of ten Gwich’in women from Fort McPherson, Aklavik, Tsiigehtchic, and Inuvik, met in Inuvik late November to complete training to deliver the materials in Gwich’in to their home communities. Two elders from each community will work together to be teachers and leaders in how to support people who may be older adults who are experiencing abuse. 

Ann Firth-Jones, President, NWT Seniors’ Society initiated this project in early 2016, Sarah Jerome, a Gwich’in elder, is the Team Leader. This project is funded by New Horizons for Seniors – Community Engagement Program and supported by the Gwich’in Tribal Council, Ingamo Hall Friendship Centre, NWT Seniors’ Society, and the community of Inuvik.

Please contact Barb Hood, Executive Director of the NWT Seniors’ Society with any questions or for further information.
