Kenora Chiefs Advisory is working to host a series of community barbecues in each of their 9-member communities over the next few weeks.

The first barbecue took place in Niisaachewan Anishinaabe Nation earlier this week, and another will be taking place today in Whitefish Bay.

Organizers have worked with all public health guidelines that are currently in place, and will be implementing social distancing protocols at all the planned events.

The goal of the barbecues is to help boost moral in the communities during these trying times.

The next barbecue will be Monday in Wauzhushk Onigum.
