about us

We recognize the traditional territories of the Katzie and Kwantlen First Nations.  We respectfully acknowledge the many nations who are represented by the urban Aboriginal population in the Fraser Valley and Metro Vancouver Areas.

ABOUT

US

In 2011 the Fraser River All Nations Aboriginal Society was formed to answer the needs of the urban Indigenous peoples of Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows.

 

Now called Fraser River Indigenous Society, we are here to serve Urban Indigenous Peoples, and so we welcome people of all nations and ages so we can foster a sense of belonging and provide space to connect and celebrate.

MISSION

An Indigenous organization providing services and programs for our community to acknowledge our past present and future generations.

VISION

 

Communities of self determined Indigenous Peoples living in a collaborative way.

 

We are evoking a name change from Fraser River All Nations Aboriginal Society to the Fraser River Indigenous Society. 

This change acknowledges the diversity of peoples we serve: Urban Indigenous Peoples, people who maybe living far from their territory, those who are displaced from their communities and heritage through colonial rule, and those with mix family dynamics.
