WHY ATTEND

 

Today’s society is plagued with stories of all the wrongs in our communities when in fact nothing could be further from the truth. For years as Indigenous men, we strive to better our families which has given rise to countless numbers of great initiatives highlighting Indigenous  monumental  achievements. To share this knowledge has always been our cultural way; as such, we feel that it is time to start promoting these ideas so that others may be able to share and spread the knowledge.
