Ninogaad Knowledge Keepers Foundation

The Ninogaad Knowledge Keepers Foundation was incorporated in 2018 to fund research and educational projects to keep Kwaxsistalla's teachings alive.

With your support we will:

Continue translating the cultural and environmental teachings of Kwaxsistalla from Kwak’wala into other languages for the benefit of future generations

Continue transcribing and translating the songs and prayers of Kwaxsistalla to sustain cultural knowledge and practices

Continue to produce educational videos and other visual media to share Kwasistalla’s teachings with children and others

Continue to create teaching guides for schools and other venues that are linked to these videos

Continue to produce academic writings that appropriately share Kwaxsistalla's knowledge

Complete books of cultural and environmental teachings that were initiated under Kwaxsistalla’s guidance

Formally archive Kwaxsistalla's collection of interviews, papers, and other materials developed to record his knowledge over last two and a half decades 

We are  applying for Charitable Status under CRA and will update the website once this has been achieved.
