Six Nations Youth Rally 2008
It is a widely known fact that more Youth need to be educated, included and empowered within Six Nations and all Indigenous communities. Especially with the many land claim issues, the negotiations, the lack of youth centre, the violence and drug related deaths and other issues within our community –the education, organization and empowerment of Six Nations Youth is all the more needed.Therefore, the Delegation of Six Nations Youth ARE OFFICIALLY PLANNING FOR A SIX NATIONS YOUTH RALLY 2008!!!!!!
The Six Nations Youth Rally 2008 is a youth organized and run event that will occur between July 11-13, 2008 at Chiefswood Park.
It has a couple of purposes:
1. To start the process of building a Youth Centre on Six Nations with the support and vision of ALL the Six Nations Youth.
2. To involve, inspire, and empower all the youth up to start making positive change and getting involved w/the stuff happening on Six Nations.
3. To get the youth together, have fun, cause some havoc and call for Unity and the inclusion of the Youth voice on Six Nations!
