Firekeepers Youth Program

May 16 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The Firekeepers Youth Program offers enrichment opportunities that promote the health and development of Native American youth ages 12-18 and their peers within an indigenous context. The program teaches Native youth what it means to “keep the fire” of our cultures and our people and how to live mno bmadzewen, a good life, in the traditional Native American worldview. We align this instruction to the Seven Grandfather Teachings of Anishinaabe tradition: love, honesty, respect, bravery, humility, wisdom, and truth.
This community-based program will include a combination of monthly meetings, special programs, social gatherings, cultural activities, community service, and educational field trips for Native American youth and their peers.

The Firekeepers Youth Program meets from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on the third Monday of each month at The Nature Place in Angelica Park beginning in January 2022.

There is no cost to participate in the program. View the flyer and register for the Firekeepers Youth Program at https://widoktadwen.org/programs/. Anyone interested in volunteering for this program or other Widoktadwen events can email [email protected]
