NACM presents at the United Nations
Inter-Pares honours the National Aboriginal Council of Midwives for their continuing social justice work!
NACM Co-Chairs Carol Couchie, Nishnawbe kwe, and Claire Dion Fletcher, Potawatomi-Lenape collaborated with Nathalie Pambrun, Métis, CAM President to issue a joint statement between NACM and CAM in response to the January 11 articles and viral video featuring a newborn seized from their mother by Manitoba officials.
In October, over 30 NACM members gathered at Kitigan Zibi to connect, share about their work and communities, learn, and plan for the future of Indigenous midwifery in Canada.
NACM’s Co-chairs are satisfied that the project took meaningful steps towards restoring birth to Indigenous communities.
