RE-INDIGENIZE HEALTH: Decolonizing Our Hearts & Minds

The NCUIH Youth Council Cohort 3 presents the RE-INDIGENIZE HEALTH: Decolonizing Our Hearts & Minds campaign summer series. This engaging experience is comprised of two events that include workshops and talking circles focused on healthy relationships and mental wellness. Our Youth Council's #IndigiMedicine social media campaign is designed to amplify Native youth voices by connecting them to culturally relevant resources that promote mental wellness and building healthy relationships during COVID-19, creating safe spaces to discuss healthy relationships and Indigenous healing practices, and educating Youth on traditional and holistic tools to share with their peers.
