In 2019 and 2020, the communities came together to create a collective vision of "Payahtakenemowin" (peace of mind) for the Shibogama Communities..
Collective Vision Statement:
"We are strong, healthy people who respect and support all creation according to the teachings of our Elders."
Our Shared Values, Principles and Codes of Behaviour That Guide Us:
"Payahtakenemowin" is the word that the communities gave to the Shibogama First Nations Council's original crisis and mental health program. Since that time the Payahtakenemowin Wellness Program has grown to a mental wellness program for the Shibogama communities that includes in-community services, a youth mental wellness program in Sioux Lookout and the crisis response program.
The Three Teams of the PAYAHTAKENEMOWIN PROGRAM are:
