Cree Nation

In the summer 2011, World Servants hosted our first mission team to the Cree Nation in Fisher River, Manitoba, Canada*. The people of Fisher River were excited to host World Servants and we worked together to accomplish a project important to them – beautifying the Leigh Cochrane Memorial Visitors Centre, a beautiful building with an upper viewing deck, a boardwalk and a unique amphitheatre, which home to Fisher River’s annual community celebration.

We were invited to return by Chief David Crate and the Fisher River Council to continue to serve alongside the community and help with projects important to the Cree. Since then teams returned to Fisher River, helped with home repairs, painted the ice rink, spent time at the nursing home and presented Kids’ Club. You will learn about the Cree culture and work with them to help improve their community.
