We are collaborating with UNYA and šxʷne:m Deanna Miller to bring you a workshop series about traditional medicines, how to identify them, and their uses.
About Deanna (from her website bio):
"Deanna Miller is from Katzie First Nation and was born and raised in the Langley territory.
In an effort to return to the ways of her ancestors, she makes medicines from plants she harvests from her land."
For part two, we will be using traditional hand picked medicines to make medicine rollers!
Deanna gathers her own medicines or reaches out to trusted sources. She uses these medicines to make oils and salves, and has agreed to share her oils with us so we can make our own medicine rollers!
Participants will be given their very own rollers to take home with them.
Yúusnewas and Deanna will be providing all the needed supplies, as well as snacks and beverages!
Culture is Healing Description
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.
Yúusnewas events take place on traditional, unceded territories of various First Nations in what is now colonially referred to as ‘British Columbia’. We hold this fact in our hearts and actions throughout our work at YouthCO. Our team is committed to an ongoing process of learning what it means to do work on this land in a way that brings us closer to Indigenous Sovereignty.
Yúusnewas offers online and in person programs organized by coordinators based on the traditional, unceded territories of the
