Naawi-Oodena, a landmark project on the site of the former Kapyong Barracks, aspires to be the pride of Winnipeg and the rest of Canada, showcasing the best in Indigenous business, design, arts, and culture for generations to come. In 2021, the Treaty One Nations (T1N) named the property Naawi-Oodena, which means “centre of the heart and community” in the Anishinaabe language.

Located just down the road from the CMU campus, this development represents the largest multi-use project in modern Winnipeg history and the single largest, strategically located urban Indigenous economic zone in Canada. It has the potential to shape Winnipeg’s future urban growth, generate significant economic investment, and connect communities.

The event includes a presentation by Naawi-Oodena leadership, a look at their 3D model and app, and conversation/questions and answers moderated by Cheryl Pauls, CMU President.

Participants from Naawi-Oodena:

  • Jolene Mercer – Director of Governance, Treaty One Nation
  • Whelan Sutherland – CEO, Treaty One Nation
  • Tim Daniels – Chief Development Officer, Treaty One Nation
  • Chief Gordon BlueSky – Chief of Brokenhead Ojibway Nation and Chairperson, Treaty One Nation
  • Dave Thomas – Planning and Design Manager, Treaty One Nation

CMU's Face2Face events are a series of conversations with CMU faculty and special guests designed to engage the community on a wide variety of current events and issues at the intersection of faith and life.
