Healing through creating strong connections to Mother Earth and traditional teachings
Building spiritual, cultural and physical health
Inspiring indigenous youth through amazing experiences
Our work is done in phases starting with the initial group at the ages of 11-12 and walking with them for a three-year period before we start to focus on a new group. We do this to ensure we are building relationships and having a significant impact on their lives. We begin at these ages because of the physical ability needed to participate in most activities but more importantly, this is a crucial time for prevention of the many challenges such as alcohol, sex, drugs, and violence. The journey evolves through cultural, community, physical, spiritual growth and self-esteem building activities and experiences.
