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.
For the month of July we will be relearning culture through food at the local Indigenous run restaurant, Salmon n' Bannock.
Taken from the Salmon n' Bannock website:

The night and participants will be taken care of by the Yúusnewas team, so the only thing you need to bring is yourself and a loved one!
