Well this sounds exciting. A training session for indigenous youth & their workers is being held in the great city of St. Albert from July XXVIth (26th) to XXXth (30th) at the Nechi Institute. From what I can understand about Nechi, it offers great programs and support networks IV aboriginal peoples.
Not only does it teach kids to be excited about their own historical culture, but how to relate that culture to today's modern times. This of course can help with employment opportunities. It also teaches the kids to be positive and really get to understand their own identity's and that they are unique personages unto themselves.
