The National Association of Friendship Centres Congratulates NAFC Senator Marge White on receiving the Order of Canada!
For more than 50 years, she has been a tireless advocate for positive change in the lives of Indigenous people. Marjorie White’s wisdom reaches far beyond the Huu-ay-aht First Nation. She was instrumental in creating a support network for individuals migrating to Canada’s urban centres, which evolved into the national Friendship Centres movement. She has devoted her energy and creativity to various regional and national organizations, and was a founder of the Circle of Eagles Lodge, a culturally relevant halfway home for clients transitioning from the correctional system. Her work has long-lasting and positive impacts on the Friendship Centre movement, Indigenous peoples, and Canadian society as a whole. We celebrate this recognition of your accomplishments with you, Marge!
