K to A: Heart of the Youth Pow-Wow: Empowering Youth, Strengthening our Community

The Heart of the Youth Pow-Wow: Empowering Youth, Strengthening our Community was a youth-led, youth-focused event, which recognized that the heart of any community is only as strong as the heart of its children/youth!

  1. Performance venue for youth Pow-Wow dancers
  2. Leadership role for youth
  3. Learning & coming together of cultures
  4. Promotion of positive life-style, active, no alcohol or drugs permitted
  5. Youth/child focused event following First Nation values of respect, community, sharing
