Kizhaay Anishinaabe Niin (an Ojibway phrase) means “I Am a Kind Man”. "I Am a Kind Man" reminds us that violence has never been an acceptable part of Aboriginal culture. This website embraces the Seven Grandfather Teachings which show us how to live in harmony with Creation through wisdom, love, respect, bravery, honesty, humility and truth. 

Our goal is to engage and educate the young people of our communities to speak out against all forms of abuse toward Aboriginal women and girls.

1. To provide education for young people to help them identify issues of abuse against Aboriginal women and girls.
2. To re-educate young people about traditional responsibilities by learning that our teachings have never condoned violence toward Aboriginal women and girls.
3. To inspire young men and boys to engage others to get involved and stop abuse.
4. To support Aboriginal young people who choose to treat women and girls with equality.

The project logo was derived from the White Ribbon Campaign’s logo. We chose to circle the ribbon with sweetgrass. Sweetgrass is a sacred medicine and through its many teachings, we begin to understand the meaning of kindness towards oneself and others.
