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

Culture is Healing is a monthly event by and for Indigenous youth to 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. This is a gender affirming space, and we welcome Indigenous youth with all identities to join us for Culture is Healing.

Join us for a River Bath : a cleansing ceremony. Where we will share songs and Amanda will lead us through the ceremony. After our ceremony we can hang out and enjoy the sun and nature. Bagged lunches will be provided so please e-mail as soon as possible if you have any dietary restrictions.
