My name is Charlie Mawakeesic and I am an aspiring student currently enrolled in the Aboriginal Community Advocacy program at Confederation College. My program required me to complete a 6 week field placement enrollment which I chose to complete at Kinna-aweya Legal Clinic. At first I never heard of Kinna-aweya Legal Clinic but as I began to familiarize myself with them I began to see the different types of services they offer to the public. My time here at Kinna-aweya has been an interesting journey and has definitely been an educational one because being here taught me a lot of about my culture, my community, and myself. Being here also built up my own interest to further my understanding in law. The people here at Kinna-aweya Legal Clinic are one of the best teams of people I have worked along with. The work they do here is important to the city on so many levels and I hope they continue to do the same type of legal work they do. If you are a (future) student with interests in social work and law I recommend Kinna-aweya Legal Clinic because it will be beneficial on so many levels and you will not regret it.
