Everything from cultural beading to traditional games and nature walks are being offered to inspire Indigenous boys living in Edmonton.
The Tuesday afternoon drop-in program is called Indigenous Boys Matter Too or IBM, and is aimed at male youth aged 15 to 17 until the end of August.
“The whole intention of Indigenous Boys Matter Too is to offer a space for Indigenous boys to learn about their culture, learn about their role as men in a healthy way,” explained program coordinator Ambrose Cardinal.
“We want to try to unpack some of the things we deal with as young men.”
