Manitoulin Island, Ontario — The Soaring Bird Aboriginal Youth Leadership Camp, a skills development program for Aboriginal youth in the First Nations community of Zhiibaahaasing in western Manitoulin, has completed its inaugural run.
From July 8 to 12, thirty individuals from the surrounding First Nations communities slept in tent-based quarters while learning a blend of Aboriginal values and culture, military training and important skills like self-discipline, leadership and respect for others. Participants were drawn from the United Chiefs and Councils of Mnidoo Mnising and the Wikemikong First Nations of Manitoulin Island.
The leadership camp mimicked a Canadian Army exercise closely, giving participants the opportunity to learn about the Canadian Armed Forces’ culture and introducing them to basic soldier skills such as fitness, field craft, and map reading.


The program is a collaborative effort between the Canadian Army, the Department of National Defence and the United Chiefs and Councils of Mnidoo Mnising and the Wikemikong First Nations of Manitoulin Island. Soaring Bird complements other programs for Aboriginal youth like Bold Eagle, Raven and Black Bear.
