When you choose Medika North, you are supporting a local First Nation (ACFN Member) owned and operated company in the RMWB region. We are an Athabascan-speaking people who call ourselves K’ai Taile Dene, meaning “people of the land of the willow”; a reference to the delta of the Peace and Athabasca Rivers. We have used and occupied our Traditional Lands in the Athabasca region for thousands of years, hunting, trapping, fishing and gathering to sustain ourselves from the lands, to carry out our livelihood and to practice and pass down our culture. It’s important that we build relationships with key business leaders near our traditional territories to work in synergy with one another as we once did many years ago. We’re proud of what we do and how we do it, and strongly believe it’s important to support local Indigenous businesses on an ongoing basis. We believe this is the key to building a mutually beneficial relationships founded on trust and respect.
