If you are a young Aboriginal woman age 16-25 (or know someone who is ) interested in community leadership skill development, check out my UN Live interview below with Natasha Latter, coordinator of the “Indigenous Young Women: Speaking our Truths, Building our Strengths” project for details on how to apply.
A joint initiative of the Native Youth Sexual Health Network and Girls Action Foundation, the project will see young Indigenous women from across Canada gather in Saskatoon this November for 4 days of workshops, mentorships and solidarity. As the project literature says, it will offer
opportunities to come together as sisters, with the inclusion of Elders and other traditional leaders in the spirit of unity to discuss what is happening, and act upon our vision of what needs to change in our communities. This is the time to be yourself, all of yourself and celebrate it!
