Kimamow Atoskanow Foundation (KAF)

July 1992 – Present

Thank you for visiting our updated website! We have spent time creating a virtual space that honours our rich history, describes our current efforts, and aspires for a healthy future. In July 2019, we celebrated 27 years of formal incorporation. We acknowledge the work that occurred prior to 1992 as foundational to all our efforts. There were several people who responded to felt needs – for connection, for understanding, and to create a safer way forward addressing issues that affect our lives.
