Tāpākōmitowin Gathering

166 Centennial St, Regina, SK S4S 6W1, Canada


Cree for Adopting as Kin

InterVarsity Circle Square Ranch Wolf Creek

Tāpākōmitowin reflects the vision of rebuilding a community out on the land. Having all nations come together as one adopted family. Creating culturally safe spaces grounded in Indigenous ways of knowing, being and doing that provide opportunities for Indigenous children, youth, families, and the community to develop a sense of self-worth and belonging, and reclamation of cultural traditions and customs through the intergenerational exchange of learning and sharing, land-based education, truth-telling, relationship building and restoring traditional teachings and practices.

Tāpākōmitowin is revitalizing the values and teachings of what it means to love one another, not only as a family but as a community.

  • Campers 6 - 12 years of age
  • Build and strengthen relationships where Indigenous people feel valued and supported on their journey of well-being and embracing their cultural identity.
  • Empower families through culturally rooted activities that are Indigenous-led in an environment that will foster a sense of belonging and be culturally safe.
  • Honour the spirit within each person, regardless of their circumstances, while promoting harmony and balance that encompasses a person’s physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, and cultural well-being.
  • Fosters healing through sharing cultural knowledge, traditions, and teachings where one’s core identity will be strengthened and restored as Creator intended it to be.
  • Provide safe spaces where Indigenous people will experience a Creator-centered life-giving opportunity to learn about themselves and their people.

This year’s theme
Sākihitowin (Love)
Represented by
the mikisiw (Eagle)

It teaches us for when we love and accept ourselves, is to live at peace with the Creator and in harmony with all of creation. Love knows no bounds. We must accept it sincerely and give it freely.

It will take place on Treaty 4 Territory,  the traditional lands of the Michif Piyii (Métis), Očhéthi Sakówin (Dakota) and the Niitsítpiis-stahkoii (Original People’s Land) of the Niitsítapi (Blackfoot) who are the original caretakers of this land.

We acknowledge the ancestors beneath our feet, an infinity of footsteps of those who long called this land home, the unfolding of bundles, the undoing of colonization and the opening of this land to allow treaty to come alive. We thank them for allowing us to meet and learn together on their land.

We are looking forward to seeing you in July!
