What is a friendship center

 

Friendship Center’s aid migrating urban Natives, in areas of employment, housing, medical, and social services.

Napi Friendship Association is designed to revolve around the social interaction between people of all ages and backgrounds. In this regard, social activities make up a significant portion of activities that take place here.

Napi Friendship Association follows this mandate, but because of the small community and relatively small urban Native population, our aims and objectives are slightly limited.

 

 

what purpose do we serve

 

Our primary goal is to create better understanding and communication between the communities of Pincher Creek and the Piikani Nation.

We endeavor to do this through the development of programs in the areas of education, recreation, cultural and social activities.

Napi Friendship Association is dedicated to servicing the need of aboriginal people residing in the urban area and improving the quality of living in the community as a whole. Fundamental to this is recognizing the inherent worth of all peoples regardless of race, creed, sexual orientation, or culture and to promote this view in the community at large.

Through individuals, agencies, and organizations working together, exchanging information and cooperating, the mutual aim of community enhancement can be achieved.

Napi Friendship Association Programming can provide encouragement and stimulation, thus making our communities a better plan to live.
