We will be providing and mailing beading supplies to 20 Indigenous youth participants in BC who confirm their spot and mailing address by November 20, whether by RSVPing below, connecting with us on social media, or calling or emailing.
This event will be hosted by two Indigenous youth facilitators, including Nona from Mediocre Beaders (@mediocrebeaders), and we have an Elder who will be joining us as well.
Culture is Healing is a monthly event for and by Indigenous youth. During these events, we come together to share cultural teachings and knowledge, and provide a safer space where we can have discussions on topics such as holistic well-being, harm reduction, sexuality, sexual health, HIV, and Hep C. This is a gender affirming space. We welcome Indigenous youth with all identities to share our space for Culture is Healing.
This is a free event for Indigenous youth between the ages of 14 - 29!
Yúusnewas will mail supplies, including thread, two needles, mini beading mat, earring findings, and 10/0 beads in four colours to participants who confirm their spot in advance.
Some items that would be helpful to have that we cannot provide in the kits is: Scissors, a lighter, and small jewelry pliers. If you cannot access pliers, other items like the scissors can work.
The event will be held over Zoom, an online video meeting platform. Participants will need access to a device with a screen, sound, mic and internet capabilities like a smartphone, tablet, laptop or desktop to participate. Zoom links will be sent to all participants who let us know you are coming, whether by RSVPing below, or connecting with us on social media.
