The Vaues of the ACW

The Aboriginal Council of Winnipeg strives to undertake its activities and pursuit of this objective in a manner that honours the seven sacred teachings:

          Love - Eagle

          Respect - Buffalo

          Courage - Bear

          Honesty - Sabe

          Wisdom - Beaver

          Humility - Wolf

          Truth - Turtle

The Aboriginal Council of Winnipeg believes that by working together, we can develop governance options that are fair for all urban Aboriginal individuals and groups. We make a commitment to challenge wrongdoings and to remove systemic barriers.
