Najakulugiit (Beautiful Sisters) Project
Tungasuvvingat Inuit’s Najakulugiit (Beautiful Sisters) project aims to improve the healing and well-being of families and friends of missing and murdered Inuit women, girls, and 2LGBTQQIA+ living in Ontario. It will provide increased access to peer and social support; a reduced sense of isolation and loneliness; increased access to culturally based healing activities; and increased ability to navigate and access the resources and services available to them.
The Najakulugiit Project aims to empower Inuit women in Ontario and support the well-being of Inuit families and survivors of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls and 2SLGBTQQIA+ People.
The Najakulugiit Project Coordinator is responsible for the successful leadership, planning, development, and delivery of all activities under TI’s Najakulugiit Project.
The Project Coordinator works in collaboration with the Najakulugiit Women’s Group, which is composed of family members and survivors. The Project Coordinator’s role will be to help the group achieve their vision and objectives, thereby helping to implement some of the key priorities and recommendations identified by the Inuit community in Ontario for inclusion in Canada’s 2021 Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls, and 2SLGBTQQIA+ People National Action Plan.
