Strengthening Our Relations Conference will return to Selkirk College this autumn, aiming to engage Indigenous youth from around the region as they take part in the third annual event. Called “Reconciliation Through Indigenous Youth Leadership,” this year’s conference will feature keynote speaker Wab Kinew. Its aim is to build youth leaders, celebrate culture and examine a youth role in Reconciliation.
The conference will be held from September 22 to 23 at the Mir Centre for Peace, Castlegar Campus and is open to youth ages 15 to 29 from around the Columbia Basin and beyond. The event’s invitation extends to First Nations, Métis and Inuit youth from all cultural backgrounds from School Districts 5, 6, 8, 10, 19, 20 and 51 and Selkirk College. Indigenous youth participants from the Traditional Territories within the Columbia Basin including Sinixt, Ktunaxa, Syilx and Secwepemc are also encouraged to attend.
