“While Providence is accountable for implementation, whether those efforts are making a difference can only be assessed by Indigenous partners. This work is inherently relational, and partnerships form the foundation of the work. Providence cannot do this work alone — it must be done in full collaboration with, and accountability to, Indigenous Peoples.”
