What is the project about?

The Indigenous Young Women: Speaking our Truths, Building our Strengths project focuses on Indigenous young women’s leadership, empowerment, building solidarity amongst each other and stopping violence. The project will focus on skill sharing and facilitation, emphasizing the fact that youth ideas matter and that youth are experts in their own right! We will also have opportunities to learn important teachings from our Elders and other traditional teachers, with an understanding that women’s strength has always existed in our communities and continues to grow.

This project is for and by: Self- identified young Indigenous Women, including First Nations, Metis, and Inuit, status or non-status, beneficiary or non-beneficiary. Those who identify as women, Trans, Two Spirit, or gender non-conforming are welcome.

This project will culminate in a national gathering in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan November 18th to 21st 2011 as well as 10 community leadership projects!

Registration deadline for the gathering is September 9th. There is NO cost to attend.
