To be an economic, independent, self-sustaining, self-governing First Nation where ALL members share a strong cultural identity based on a profound understanding of who we are and on a clear sense of connection with our cultural origins.

A community that lives in peace with all of creation, maintains a healthy balance between the individual and collective needs, and works productively with both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal communities, based on a sense of mutual respect and equality.

Where Members rightfully come together and virtuously establish a strong sense of self-esteem, respect for each other and who work together for the well being of all.

A First Nation in which the youth have a positive future, and the Elders hand over a strong and thriving community to the next generation.
