Reconnecting Your Spirit: Indigenous Youth Group

In partnership with M'Wikwedong Building Gender Diverse Communities, we will be co-hosting an online gathering space for 2 Spirit, Indigiqueer, and LGBTQ+ Indigenous youth (16-29) who live in Ontario. The space will be facilitated by Karen, Indigenous 2S Indigiqueer & LGBTQQIAP+ Helper and supported by YouthLine staff members Hayley and Katrina. From March 9-12, we will be meeting once per day to reconnect to our spirit by building our bundles. We will be making medicine pouches, rattles, and bundle blankets! All materials will be provided, along with meal cards for each day we gather. We are incredibly excited to have Two Spirit Elder, Blu Waters, join us for each session.
