Rites of passage is actually a retelling or rekindling of our Moontime teachings and visions questing. this project would help our communities come together to support the youth to become an integral part of the community. it would foster healthy attitudes towards self, community, culture, acadaemia, and society. these rites would also act as a way of connecting with ancestral roots, nature, and learning tradtional knowledge. our youth would be proud of their culture, themselves and their community. Currently there seems to be a rekindling and re-awakening of a thirst for this knowledge. The youth have been asking for this type of cultural reclamation that affirms them in who they are as members of the Aboriginal nations of our country.
