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.

This December, come join us for a night of traditional storytelling with our Elder Val! We will also be beading and making medicine bags, moon-time bags, and condom pouches while we listen to Elder Val’s stories. 

Yúusnewas will be providing dinner for all participants to share a meal as we enjoy stories and culture. If you have any dietary needs, please let us know so we can ensure there is food available for you. Contact us at [email protected]


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

  • Youth of all sexualities, genders, abilities are welcome to join us. 
  • We are able to provide bus tickets at the event, and may be able to get bus tickets to you before the event if needed. Please let us know.
  • Our space is on the second floor, and there is an elevator available. We have two all gender washrooms, one of which has wheelchair accessibility.
  • On site childcare is available upon request. Please let us know if you would like childcare, and the age(s) of any children you are bringing.
  • This is a scent-reduced event. 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.
