Community Vision For Kahnawake

All Kahnawakero:non are in excellent health. Diabetes no longer exists. All the children and adults eat healthily at all meals and are physically active daily. The children are actively supported by their parents and family who provide nutritious foods obtainable from family gardens, local food distributors and the natural environment. The schools as well as community organizations, maintain programs and policy that reflect and reinforce healthy eating habits and daily physical activity. There are a variety of physical activities for all people offered at a wide range of recreational facilities in the community. All people accept the responsibility to cooperatively maintain a well community for the future Seven Generations."

The vision of the community was developed in 1995 through a participatory community process involving Community Advisory Board (CAB) members, community and academic researchers as well as KSDPP staff.
