The Nitootem (friend in Michif) Youth Gathering immerses participants in Indigenous language and cultural learning opportunities, where all youth can engage in traditional language games, learn about the histories, and enjoy traditional Indigenous foods. This gathering will give the opportunity to share in cultural practices and allow a greater understanding and appreciation for Indigenous heritage and languages while promoting the pride and beauty they hold. We hope to educate youth about the significance of cultural practices and traditions and share ways to incorporate these teachings in your classrooms in a meaningful way.
Registration is now closed.
Our gathering supports, strengthens and celebrates our Indigenous languages and our theme Bringing Our Languages Home combats the standstill of intergenerational transmission and focuses on bringing the languages back to our communities and our homes.
