BEARDY’S & OKEMASIS FIRST NATION EXCHANGE | Nov 7-11, 2016
Beardy’s & Okemasis First Nation is one of the original signatories to Treaty 6, making it a location rich in Cree culture. Its proximity to Fort Carleton and Batoche also make it an ideal place to learn about Métis and Saskatchewan history. Over the course of 4 days and nights, 13 Indigenous and non-Indigenous participants will come together to learn from community members and develop a greater understanding of each others’ current realities. As part of this program, youth participants will learn about the historical importance of the region as well as the modern successes of the community. Youth between the ages of 18 and 29 years of age are encouraged to apply. This project is supported in part by Willow Cree Health Services. Youth participants who are selected will be asked to contribute a participation fee. CRE will provide round-trip transport from Saskatoon, food, lodging and all activities for the program. CRE strives to make its programs accessible and as such, youth facing financial barriers who have challenges contributing the full fee are still encouraged to apply as some bursaries can be made available. Selected participants are required to attend 1-2 pre-departure sessions before the exchange.
Interested participants should submit an online application, or contact firstname.lastname@example.org,1-306-966-2964
