Counsel of Grandparents
The establishment and operation of the Well Living House is guided by a committee of Elders called the Counsel of Grandparents. This group has extremely high credibility and influence within and beyond Indigenous communities across Canada. The Grandparents have agreed to serve the Well Living House as role models, strategists, teachers, knowledge keepers, advocates and supports. A core function of the Counsel is to strongly root the Well Living House in Indigenous ways of knowing and doing. For more about how the Well Living House is organized, please see governance.
