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

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 7th event is an Indigenous Plant Walk with Arianna Johnny-Wadsworth of Quw'utsun' Made

This is an event 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.

Deadline to RSVP is August 28th, 2018 at 5:00 pm. We will have a chartered bus to bring youth from YouthCO (205-568 Seymour Street, just outside the Granville skytrain station), RSVP is required in order to secure a spot on the bus if you need. 

Yúusnewas will also have sandwiches, water, and snacks available for youth that attend. Please email [email protected] for any dietary needs. 

This is a free event for all self-identified Indigenous people between the ages of 14 - 29 regardless of sexuality, gender, or abilities.
We will be walking along trails in Stanley Park, many of these trails do not have high incline or decline, but can be tiring for some. We will be mindful of everyone's varying abilities and will take breaks often! 
Scent-reduced event, but we do smudge and use medicine that can have scent - please give us at least 24hr notice if you have sent sensitivities.
We are able to reimburse for bus tickets for those that need it. 

If you have any dietary restrictions, access, or childcare needs you can email us at [email protected]
