Cultural Group

Oshkiniikidjig Miikanens


This is a youth-driven group designed to provide all youth ages 12 - 18 with traditional Anishnabek programming. Participants learn about community resources, land-based treatments, and cultural practices to support youth healing and connection. Weekly meetings may consist of hosting guest speakers such as Aboriginal elders, having a cultural movie night, engaging in traditional cultural practices such as beading, or attending community events such as Lakehead University’s pow wow.
