Young People's Elders Gathering

The Young People's Elders Gathering is an extension of the Truth and Reconciliation Conference that UCN has hosted for the last seven years. 


The event runs today and tomorrow at the legion in Thompson, bringing together young people and elders to share their experiences and work towards healing as a community.


Karl Laubmann, cultural coordinator with the UCN, has more.


"The young people's elders gathering.  It's called stoking the embers connecting Generations.  The whole purpose behind a conference is to start developing reconciliation for our young people in Northern Manitoba to carry the message forward and how they can go about being part of that."


Jennifer Wood with the National Center for Truth and Reconciliation will present today, and breakout sessions will run this afternoon featuring a "fireside chat" with Brady Keeper, economic reconciliation, and health and wellness.


Tomorrow's sessions will include a "fireside chat" with JR LaRose and Ken Bighetty, which will be a continuation of today's sessions.
