Hopedale set to hold Labrador Inuit Youth Symposium
April 23, 2019
This year’s Labrador Inuit Youth Symposium will center on land-based programming with a focus on cultural healing.
The annual event, taking place at the Department of Health and Social Development’s Healing Lodge at Little Bay near Hopedale from April 24-29, will gather youth from each of the five Labrador Inuit communities and Upper Lake Melville, as well as from the Canadian Constituency. The delegates will take part in a variety of activities, including a session on throat singing, and presentations on governance and leadership, reducing the carbon footprint and language.
There will also be discussions on revitalizing the Rising Youth Council, as well as sessions on how prepare and make cultural foods. A cultural feast is also being planned for later in the week.
