We Matter is a place Indigenous youth can turn to for an uplift, for positive support, or for a reminder that you matter.
Message of The Week:
“Jukipa’s Video reminded me that even though things can be hard that there is always a place for Indigenous youth, that we belong, that we matter and the we deserve to be seen and heard. Its a reminder that its ok to get down but that we can also get right back up and keep going.”
As an advocate it’s not enough to say Indigenous youth need to be in certain spaces, we have to bring them with us or call in those tokenizing our young people and let them know what meaningful engagement actually looks like.
