Piikani Nation has entered into a funding agreement with the Department of Justice Canada to operate a project entitled, "Piikani Nation Customary Law Program."
Through this project, Piikani will research traditional justice practices of the Piikani Nation and the rebuilding of relationships between family, community and individually. Traditional teachings as applied by grandparents, elders, parents and extended family members will be explored and documented, specific to traditional teachings, cultural and customary values as applied by the people of Piikani Nation. Information gathered will be shared during group gatherings and with young members of the Nation for the purpose of strengthening the resolution of disputes and restoring harmony and balance within the community. Traditional teachings gathered will be used to govern the resolution of disputes, and a video produced as a resource tool for justice stakeholders and members of the Nation.
