Shekoli, Ahnee, Boozhoo, Koolamalsi, Welcome….. Celebrating over 50 years of service
The N’Amerind Friendship Centre is a non-profit organization committed to the promotion of physical, intellectual, emotional and spiritual well-being of native people and in particular, urban native people.
The commitment is realized through the implementation of culturally relevant programs aimed at social recreational and educational needs; at developing leadership, at increasing awareness levels of native heritage, establishing resources for community development and in promoting the development of urban aboriginal self-governing institutions.
Realizing the Mission
The Aboriginal Friendship Centre movement guides volunteers, Board of Directors, committee members and staff in working diligently, enthusiastic, effortless and with much dedication to ensure that we positively effect the quality of life for Aboriginal people of London and surrounding area.
N'Amerind held a "Logo Contest" this past May thru June - the submissions were presented at our Annual General Meeting held on June 23 2022. The community who was in attendance at the meeting were able to vote on which logo they felt would best represent N'Amerinds new logo. We are proud to present our new N'Amerind logo made by Teyelihwa'ka:ne'.
