Indigenous Nursing (kā-wīci-pimohtēmāt)
kā-wīci-pimohtēmāt is a group of Indigenous nurses whose goal is to educate, collaborate, and enable all Saskatchewan nurses to work together to address the current health disparities between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples, and to facilitate a platform for direct communication between the College of Registered Nurses of Saskatchewan (CRNS) and the Indigenous nurses in this province.

- facilitate the integration of the Truth and Reconciliation Calls to Action #18-24
- review expert literature and policies related to Indigenous peoples
- collaborate with Canadian Indigenous Nurses Association (CINA)
kā-wīci-pimohtēmāt (pronounced gaah-weechi-bimohte-maat) means ‘a person who walks with others on their journey’.
