The 2016-2020 Strategic Plan is now complete.
The Executive Council believes that, “As a strong and self-governing Nation, this Strategic Plan is an important tool that will guide us along our path for the coming four years and beyond. It helps us connect where we have come from, where we are now, and where we want to go.”
The plan identifies:
1) The outcomes that the Huu-ay-aht government is setting out to achieve
2) The broad strategies the Nation will use to accomplish these outcomes
The plan builds off of the previous 2014-2017 Strategic Plan and reflects the input of citizens, Ḥaw̓iiḥ, and committee members who voiced their ideas in the creation of the preceding plan and through renewed consultation in the fall of 2015. The plan provides the foundation for the annual budget and will also be used as the basis for the more detailed roadmaps that will be used by council and administration.
Ḥaw̓iiḥ council says, “Our goal, as we the Huu-ay-aht, is Nation building. We wish to build capacity of our Ancient Spirit, always remembering ancestral teachings and looking for
opportunities where our language, culture and history can be shared in the modern day!”
Citizens are encouraged to read the Huu-ay-aht First Nations Strategic Plan 2016-2020 and offer their feedback. Community Engagement Sessions will be announced soon, so that Executive Council can open conversation on the plan with citizens. If you would like to offer your feedback prior to this, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or in the comments section of the website.
The Strategic Plan 2016-2020 is also available, along with the previous strategic plan, under Our Government on the Huu-ay-aht website.
