Huddle Ka Ni Kanichihk

Cultural healing is at the core of what we do.

At Huddle Ka Ni Kanichihk, we work hard to give you access to cultural healing. We know that cultural practices can be key to leading a healthier, happier life, and it’s our honour to offer this.  

Whether you come to Huddle for culturally based health and wellness services, including primary care (seeing a doctor or nurse about your physical and sexual health), employment services, substance use support, mentorship, recreation, Indigenous ceremony, or anything else, we want you to feel comfortable and respected, free from judgment and misunderstanding.

We are passionate advocates for our Indigenous communities and their wellness, but we welcome all of our surrounding neighbours to Huddle.

My name is Donna and I am the first person to greet Huddle Youth Hub visitors, participants, and any youth needing to access our services. I enjoy working with youth, because they are our future generation. Our Huddle team builds healthy relationships with Huddle participants and service providers to promote healthier communities for our youth. I am a proud Indigenous woman, and I am also a mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and a friend. I have lived in Winnipeg for 10 years and outside of work I enjoy spending time doing activities with my friends and family. I also like watching movies, and going for walks in my spare time.
