Programs and Services

Empowering community by working together.

Cultural Programming

Our Niniimi’iwe Program focuses on “positive identity building”, conveying Aboriginal teachings alongside Aboriginal dance traditions. This 9-month program allows participants to embark on a personal journey of self-discovery, while building sustainable skills and becoming proactive by giving back to the community.

Traditional Pow Wows

Neemu-Egwah Inc. will be hosting four Pow Wows throughout the year within the community, one for each season. This tradition is not practiced as much any more. Its restoration is crucial to honouring one of the 7 teachings by reinforcing the traditional path and identity of ceremony within the traditional dance community.

Dance Productions

We will continue to host large scale dance productions at theatres throughout the community on a regular basis. Proceeds from these events will be shared with various other non-profit community-based organizations in Winnipeg and Manitoba.

Scholarship Fund

The Neemu-Egwah Scholarship Fund provides select graduates of our cultural program an opportunity to work and train in a professional environment that lets them apply their acquired skills.

Annual Gala Event

Neemu-Egwah hosts an annual gala to raise funds to support cultural programming and partnerships with other community organizations, bringing people together to network and form relationships, building bridges of cultural understanding and influencing positive change for the community as a whole.


Neemu-Egwah is the proud host of Folklorama’s First Nations Pavilion. The 2019 Pavilion was a fantastic success this August at the RBC Convention Centre. Stay tuned for more news on the 2020 First Nations Pavilion.

Empowering Community by Working Together

Neemu-Egwah Inc. is a Winnipeg-based non-profit organization working with children in care and their foster parents, low-income families, newcomers as well as agencies and companies seeking to make contributions to the community and create relationships with the knowledge keepers in Aboriginal communities. We provide culture-focused programming and services on a multicultural level to help engage the community, build strong identities and bring the right people together to bring about positive change for individuals and the community as a whole.

Neemu-Egwah”, loosely translated from the Oji-Cree language means “to bring the right energy and people together and move forward in a good way.” The elder who gave the name believes in ‘inclusion’ and dreams to see a day when Indigenous people live within their culture, and that all people can find their great purpose along with their spirit. We believe that when the right kind of people come together, we can drive forward motions of inclusion, building bridges that foster understanding, acceptance and relationship building.
