The goal of Manitoba Uske is to provide a source of networking between Manitoba Region First Nations Lands Managers, INAC and the National Aboriginal Lands Managers Association on land related issues, to create systems that will assist First Nations in all areas of Land Management. Guided by the following principles:
Develop an on-going communication link (INAC, NALMA, Regional Lands Associations).
To participate in the areas of policy (revisions, development) and procedures with regard to Lands Management.
To contribute in the growth of developing a fair and consistent professional process for administering First Nation Lands.
Manitoba Uske effectively and efficiently assists First Nations in exchanging current information on projects, policies, developments, by-laws, court cases and processes relevant to land and resource management.
This exchange of information allows Manitoba First Nations and their Lands Managers to develop strength through information and experience sharing. It also provides a forum for Lands Managers to discuss local, regional, provincial, national lands management topics and the impact of these topics on the lands managers and their First Nations.
Manitoba Uske executes their objectives by:
- providing capacity building, training and expertise in the area of land management for Lands Managers in Manitoba
- providing professional development workshops with up-to-date and relevant information
- tailoring training to Manitoba Uske members
- developing and supporting on-going communication and networking links
- operating as a non-political technical body
- assisting INAC with input into land management policies
- offering tools and systems to manage lands
- recruiting members from First Nations in Manitoba
- introducing professional expertise in the field
