Where the Spirits Roam

PRESENTED ON JUN 01, 2017
IN EDMONTON @ VOL 28

"The land means everything to me. I'm just another part of the circle. When I work with youth who are lost in a myriad of government-imposed systems, this connection has often been broken. And how do we bring that connection back?"

Conor Kerr shares how creating a cultural connection to the natural evironment for both Indigenous and non-Indigenous youth will allow for finding who we are as Indigenous people and as allies moving forward together.
