About Daystar Native Outreach

DayStar Native Outreach is passionate in living the love of God in our native communities. We desire to affirm them and walk with them to see healing, restoration, and reconciliation in each of their lives and their communities.


To accomplish this, DayStar seeks to develop culturally sensitive programming and opportunities geared to Men, Women, Elders, Youth and Children. Throughout the year these programs are run at the community center in Wiikwemkoong Unceeded Territory and M'Chigeeng FN on Manitoulin Island, Thessalon FN, as well as many other communities on the North and East Shore and Manitoulin Island


This requires STAFF. The funds raised this year through Ride for Refuge will enable us to employ 2 more native staff, working along side of us to provide these programs and opportunities.
