About Huktaz'Un Shelter

Huktaz'Un means "The sun will rise"...

The rising sun after darkness serves as a timeless metaphor for overcoming hard times. Just as the world plunges into darkness during the night, our lives can sometimes be enveloped in challenges, adversity, and despair. However, the unwavering promise of a new day and the emergence of the sun remind us that even in our darkest moments, there is always the potential for the renewal of hope. It teaches us that hardships, like the night, are temporary. Just as the sun rekindles the world with its warmth and life-giving rays, we too can emerge from adversity with newfound strength and resilience. The sun rising is a symbol of endurance and the cyclical nature of life, inspiring us to preserver through difficult times, knowing that brighter days lie ahead.

Our Mission

Our Mission

We are dedicated to providing a safe, and empowering emergency refuge for Women, Children, and Two Spirited Individuals facing domestic violence. Founded on profound respect for indigenous women and families, our shelter is staffed by a dedicated team of individuals who understand the unique challenges and strengths of our residents. Our mission is to offer solace and support, not only in times of crisis but also in the journey towards healing, growth, and independence. We believe in the power of cultural reconnection, traditional healing, and community strength. 

At Huktaz'Un, we strive to create a nurturing environment where survivors can find their voice, reclaim their heritage and women's sovereignty, and build a brighter future. Our emergency shelter offers a secure and confidential refuge for survivors, complete with resources, accommodations, safety planning and transportation. We are committed to breaking the cycle of violence and fostering hope, resilience, and empowerment for those we serve.

Huktaz'un reminds us that, no matter how long the night may seem, the dawn will inevitably break, and the light of a new beginning will guide the way.
