Event description

Description

Young Indigenous Women's Circle of Leadership is a Cree Immersion program for young Indigenous women, ages 10 -20. This program focuses on providing young women with access to Cree language, traditions, land, and teachings within a frame that speaks to all four parts of our being - the spiritual, emotional, physical, and mental. The programming is holistic. Cree teachers are both language and traditional knowledge holders, who provide young women with Indigenous knowledge about identity, leadership, and the value of young Indigenous women. This program is fun, loving, caring; really it's about feeling good and free to be an Indigenous woman!

This is a Free program, running from:

Monday, July 27th - Tuesday, August 1th - from 1 pm - 2 pm. (No program during weekends)

*This year, the format of the program has changed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are offering a virtual program for young women. Each of the 12 daily sessions, via Zoom Meeting technology, will include teachings, activities, and themes that will be aimed at supporting young women in learning the Cree language and traditions rooted in spiritual growth and love.

* Participants must be able to attend the whole duration of the program.

*Participants must be between the ages of 10-18 years old.

*Parents are strongly encouraged to support their young women in accessing the program and in doing the activities.

*Supply kits will be mailed to each participant in time for the program.

* Cell phone, or tablet, or computer is required.

*Please note that the availability of the program is very limited. The program is intentional in providing on-going mentorship and therefore selection is based on our ability to provide mentorship to past participants as well as new young women.
