Culture is Healing: Feeding the Spirit Winter Wellness Event

Decolonizing Our Health Through Culture and Traditional Food

Culture is Healing: Feeding the Spirit is an initiative led by YouthCO HIV and Hep C Society supported by the First Nations Health Authority. YouthCO has been operating for 21 years providing peer education and support to youth around HIV. 

The focus of the event is to bring Indigenous youth together from across the lower mainland to engage youth with culture, and traditional food preparation.

Participants will be involved in a one-day workshop with a group of ~ 80 youth.  During the workshop the participants will receive training on decolonizing our health through Indigenous perspectives, including safer sex practices, HIV, Hep C, and Harm Reduction.  At the end of the workshop the participants will have produced traditional food and have knowledge around preparation.
