Ontario Native Women’s Association (ONWA) Recognizes Fundraising Initiative

Thunder Bay, ON – The Ontario Native Women’s Association (ONWA) would like to acknowledge Robyn Knickle, Director of Development at the Neighbour 2 Neighbour Centre in Hamilton, Ontario, for launching her Go Fund Me campaign in support of ONWA’s work.


Robyn’s basic question, “why are Canadians not rallying in support of Indigenous communities?”, drove her to take personal action. Knickle has generously set a goal to raise $5,000 at a time when Indigenous women, children and communities are dealing with challenges such as access to clean water, food security and safety.


“In these divisive times, it is amazing to see how one individual can truly make a difference. Robyn represents the positive beauty of the Seven Grandfather Teachings, reaching across cultures with constructive action to benefit our communities and work towards reconciliation with Indigenous Women, families and communities. Funds raised will be used to support Indigenous women’s education. For this we say Chi miigwetch to Robyn and to all who have chosen to support her effort and our organization.” stated Cora McGuire-Cyrette, ONWA Executive Director.
