Event Description 

Mycelium is collaborating with Yúusnewas and Raven and Hummingbird Indigenous Teas (rhtea)to celebrate Pride this Magical Midsummer by gathering the ✨ Grand Council of Fae ✨ at Harmony Garden (FB) (Instagram)We will gather and play together at our Grand Council to be blessed to hear from Senaqwila Wyss (she/her), owner and curator of rhtea who will share with us the wondrous flavours of bannock eating, and the beauty of tea making! Let’s spend some time in the sun and shade, sip on west coast inspired teas, treats, and play with our fae friends. Come have a 🌈MAGICAL PRIDE🌈 with us 🧚🧚🧚🧚🧚 

Harmony Garden, X̱wemelch’stn pen̓em̓áy, is a fourteen-year-old food forest and place of community, offering a safe, vibrant, colorful and creative place for gathering and connection. The arts are naturally incorporated into the space, as Harmony Garden partners with emerging Indigenous artists on a variety of projects. The garden invites visitors to learn about the Indigenous plants that grow throughout Sḵwx̱wú7mesh land, many of which are growing right there in the garden.

For this event, we will also be having Monica Cheema (she/her) join us to DJ for us with Dreamy Desi Fae Music!! Monica is a filmmaker and interdisciplinary artist based on the lands of the Semiahmoo, Katzie and Kwantlen (otherwise known as Surrey). Monica is grateful and excited to be joining YouthCo to share some of her favourite desi tunes from her upcoming Punjabi music archival project, ‘Flower Shop Radio’. :cherry_blossom:

Mycelium Description 

Mycelium is space for queer & trans youth 16-29 across what is currently known as BC, where we gather to center healing, pleasure, and justice in our lives as we envision and create a world liberated from HIV & Hep C stigma. We are committed to reducing stigma related to HIV & Hep C and to building communities where we feel safe talking about the highs and lows of sex, drugs, relationships, and all the things that bring us pleasure. 

Yúusnewas Description 

Yúusnewas is an Indigenous youth-led program that provides opportunities for Indigenous youth to connect with each other, build skills and knowledge to take care of each other, and challenge stigma related to HIV and Hep C. We approach the topics of sexual health and harm reduction by centering Indigenous perspectives and incorporating traditional teachings. Yúusnewas connects with Indigenous youth through group programming, including workshops (in-person and online), drop-in cultural programming, and an annual video-making workshop! We also connect with youth on Facebook and Instagram. Our programming focuses on youth from 14 to 29 years old.

We hold this fact in our hearts and actions throughout our work at Mycelium. 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.
