Culture is Healing: Cedar Weaving

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


Culture is Healing is a monthly event for and by Indigenous youth. During these events, we come together to share cultural teachings and knowledge, and are able to provide a safer space where we can have discussions on topics such as holistic well-being, harm reduction, sexuality, sexual health, HIV, and Hep C. This is a gender affirming space, and we welcome Indigenous youth with all identities to share our space for Culture is Healing.


For the month of November, Leonard and Linda will be facilitating a cedar weaving workshop. All supplies and dinner will be provided. This event is FREE for Indigenous youth. Please join us at 6:00pm! 

If you have any questions regarding the event, any dietary restrictions and/or allergies, or if there are ways we can make this event accessible for you please contact Amanda via email at amandat@youthco.org. RSVP below to help us plan! 

 

 

ACCESSIBILITY:

This is a free event for all self-identified Indigenous people between the ages of 14 - 29! 

Our space is located on the second floor, accessible by elevator or stairs. We have two all gender washrooms, one of which is a large accessible washroom.

Bus tickets will be available if requested.

We ask that you join us in making this event as scent-reduced as possible. This means maybe using fragrance-free products in lieu of any scented-products you may usually use. We do smudge and use medicine that can have scent. Please give us as much notice as possible if smudging or medicine use may aggravate scent sensitivities.

On site childcare is available upon request. Please let us know the age(s) and number of any children you are bringing.
