The SRFN Community Blog

Do you have big ideas or something to say?

Annii to our SRFN Community members!  The Jijaak Doodem would like to invite you to participate in our new community blog.  We are accepting submissions for blog content now.  There are some criteria for items submitted to the blog section of the website.  The requirements are:

  • Acceptable blog topics include: history, culture, land use, sustainable living, mental, spiritual or physical health, fishing, hunting or harvesting, family and cultural traditions, and various other areas of community interest.
  • Blogs must be generally positive and enhance the “oneness” of community and not be interpretable as inflammatory or insightful of negative public discourse.
  • Blogs must be written to maintain an acceptable grammatical standard and have a reasonable entertainment, educational or engagement value to the reader.
  • Blog posts must not contain false or misleading claims.

A few notes on submissions:

Not all blogs submitted will be posted.  We are committed to helping all voices in our community to be heard, however we must insure that submissions are in accordance with the criteria as outlined above.  We reserve the right to recommend edits or revisions to assist community members with bringing their submissions into accordance with the posting criteria but will never perform edits directly on submissions without the consent of the author.  We will consider all entries, including from off reserve members or other community partners if they are deemed to follow the criteria.  Serpent River First Nation claims no responsibility for protecting the intellectual property of the authors, it is always possible that blog posts can be copied and shared to other non SRFN web pages; understand this when submitting.  Serpent River First Nation will not financially, or by any other means compensate blog contributors; this blog is being run as a community service to create a comfortable community space for the exchange of ideas and experiences of our community members and will run for as long as that ideal can be achieved.

To submit your blog for review please email the written text as a pdf document to the webmaster@serpenriverfn.com.  If you have any questions or would like to request more information concerning the community blog you can do so by clicking the button below:
