Statement of Need
In the West-End area of Edmonton and throughout Turtle Island there is a high population of Aboriginal children, youth families and individuals who are suffering from the effects of multi-generational trauma as result of residential schools, colonization, relocation, smallpox, inflicted Christianity and loss of culture.
To reduce the abuse, apathy, isolation, low self-esteem, stress, grief addiction, violence and general pain in our peoples' lives (Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal). We strive to increase our participants' knowledge of Indigenous peoples' educational, health, legal, psychological and social life ways, rights, values and beliefs through cultural lens.
