The Siksika Nation has entered into a funding agreement with the Department of Justice Canada to manage the Aiskapimohkiiks Program.
The objective of the Program is to provide assistance to all Siksika Nation members involved in disputes through the Aiskapimohkiiks Program which uses a two-phased mediation and/or arbitration model that incorporates Siksika's customs and traditions. The first phase is "Aiipohtsiniimsta" which uses mediation. The second phase is "Aiskapimohkiiks" which uses arbitration when parties have not been able to agree to a settlement in mediation. The Program assists individuals in promoting self-determination and helps to restore independence, solidarity, unity, peace and harmony.
The Aiskapimohkiiks Program works closely with partners such as the Crown prosecutors, Calgary Police Service and Government of Alberta social service agencies. The Program supports members from Siksika Reserve as well as the surrounding communities of Gleichen, Cluny and Strathmore.
