The Nishnawbe Aski Nation To Have Hope Youth Gathering was a success with opportunities for youth to learn about healthy expression, leadership skills and cultural teachings.
“It’s been awesome,” says Ashley Bach, a Mishkeegogamang youth who grew up out west and recently graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Science degree from McGill University. “It’s been a really good gathering. I’ve done a few workshops every day. Yesterday I made a drum, on Friday I learned about medicines from Elder Tom Chisel.”
