Culture Is Healing - Cedar Weaving Night

This event takes place on the traditional territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, səl̓ilwətaɁɬ, and Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Nations.

 

Culture is Healing - FREE Cedar Weaving Workshop!

One way we can take care of ourselves and communities is through learning and sharing our traditional teachings. With that in mind, we are happy to announce our third event is a cedar weaving workshop, led by Shawna Kiesman!

This is a space where Indigenous youth can come together to share our culture and have great discussions about things like holistic well-being, harm reduction, sexuality, sexual health, HIV, and Hep C. 

Food and drinks will be available all evening.

Access:

  • This is a free event for all self-identified Indigenous people between the ages of 14 - 29 regardless of sexuality, gender, or abilities.
  • Our space has an elevator, but unfortunately our washrooms are not wheelchair accessible.
  • Scent-reduced space, but we do smudge inside.
  • We are able to provide bus tickets for those that need them.
  • If you have any dietary restrictions, access or childcare needs you can email us at yuusnewas@youthco.org

Will you come?


YouthCO's office is located on the unceded traditional territory of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, Sḵwx̱wú7mesh and Tsleil-Waututh people. Our programs take place on unceded, ancestral, and traditional territories of many Indigenous nations across what is now called BC.

YouthCO believes that all youth have the right to accessible and affirming information about our health. We also know each of us has a unique relationship to our bodies, sex, sexuality, substance use, and harm reduction. For many of us, the words other people use for our bodies and their functions are not the words we use for ourselves. Throughout our website, YouthCO uses words for bodies and sex that we know will not reflect the full diversity of our communities. We have tried to, where possible, be as expansive with our language as we know how to while being as specific as possible. As youth leading the HIV movement, we too are learning about the best words for our experiences and do not do this perfectly. We invite any feedback about the language used on our website to help us move forward in the best ways for all youth in our communities!
