Indigenous youth in Winnipeg face obstacles like negative labels and stereotyping, along with poverty and addiction. At Turtle Lodge on the Sagkeeng First Nation in Manitoba, Indigenous and non-Indigenous youth come together for Zam-mi-nan aki (Touch the Earth), a three-day cultural retreat. At this retreat, supported by Broadway Neighbourhood Centre, youth learn traditional teachings, create bonds, challenge misperceptions, and bridge divides in a culturally appropriate environment.

Your Gift provides one youth with the opportunity to attend this retreat of intensive cultural exploration.
