About

This gathering is focused on widening the circle of indigenous and settler youth engagement in indigenous rights and in living as treaty people.


This gathering is focused on widening the circle of indigenous and settler youth engagement in indigenous rights and in living as treaty people.

This gathering will be an empowering opportunity to envision and build sovereignty and self-determination among the youth of the Wabanaki nations. Through ceremony, reflection, and the support of elders, we will work together to explore connections between ceremony, language, world-views, citizenship, relationships, governance, treaties, rights, responsibilities and life together.

We will explore how Wabanaki traditions and world-views can guide our relationships with Canada and other colonial structures. This will include talking circles, teaching times, sacred fire, fun, and traditional crafts – along with deep discussion and learning.

We will bring together youth in the range of ages 18-39.
