June 2, 2020—Cawston, BC: Touch the Earth is a land-based training program for Indigenous youth workers seeking to awaken their youth to a sense of pride, belonging, and possibility. Experiential activities of attuning to and caring for the land provide Indigenous youth a safer entry point to engage their feelings and listen to themselves and others.
The training focuses on modeling activities that deepen the senses and increase awareness of what’s going on in the natural world. Youth workers are taught how to facilitate key conversations about the history and interconnected stories of the land. These conversations provide an entry point to talking about our personal stories, which leads Indigenous youth to a greater sense of belonging, strengthened emotional literacy, and more secure attachment.
We are asking facilitators and community leaders from across BC to join us.
The long term strategic direction of IndigenEYEZ is to ignite and sustain a movement that actively works towards systemic change. We are focused not only on today, but seven generations ahead. We are excited to invite you to Touch the Earth, a land-based leadership training.
This training is to empower camp leaders, youth workers, and knowledge keepers to transport our IndigenEYEZ creative leadership methods to your own communities and youth programs.

• Share tools to rebuild the fabric of our communities
• Breathe life back into our Indigeneity
