|Dear NACM community,
Over the last six years, many members have approached the Co-Chairs about changing our name to use the word Indigenous in place of Aboriginal.
The Core Leadership held an in-person meeting in September 2022, where we discussed and agreed to a name change while keeping our scope of work clear by keeping the words national and council in any new name.
In February, a survey was sent to our members to help the Core Leadership select the organization’s new name.
We are pleased to announce that an overwhelming majority of members voted for the name: National Council of Indigenous Midwives (NCIM).
