Our Success

Dim Hańiihitgumhl Aiihitgumhl Ayuugam Gandidilshl Nisga'a                          

We will stand on the Nisga'a Principles of Life

The success of NVHA depends on the contributions of each and every person involved with the work of our organization. We value opportunities to train, employ, and develop the skills and gifting of our own people in the pursuit of community-defined health goals.

We believe that healthy, self-sustaining communities occur naturally when:

  • People have respect and pride in their ancestry and traditions;
  • Cultural restoration is a priority;
  • Improved standards of living are experienced regarding shelter, food, education, employment opportunities, a stable environment, and social justice; and
  • When the people are involved in contributing to these goals.
