Cochrane Indigenous Arts & Culture Week

March 16-23, 2023

Discover the House of Oneness
A local not for profit

We welcome you to Treaty 7 lands and the traditional land of Iyahre Nakoda (Bearspaw, Chiniki and Goodstoney Bands), the  Niitsitapi (Blackfoot confederacy: Siksika, Kainai, Piikani),  Tsuu T’ina and the Metis Nation in Region 3.

Wazin = One

Ichinabi = Feeling part of

Ti = House

“House of Oneness was chosen because from an Iethka perspective we are one with all creation. Earth is a living entity and to be one with nature is a virtue. It is named as such because Elders want everyone to learn this virtue” (the late Dr. Trent Fox, 2023). 

In my class we say, ‘wazin ĩeichninabi’, which means ‘I’m one with you’. I’ll eat, I’ll laugh, I’ll cry with you. That’s what I want to put out there in my class. And it’s working. This is about reconciliation. I’m happy this kind of work is happening,” (the late Buddy Wesley).

Wazin Îchinabi Ti is a non-profit society that provides a place of acceptance and well-being and connections for Indigenous and non-Indigenous people through a variety of community-based programs, services and opportunities.
