This program is inspired by the Indigenous way of knowing, where people are diverse but share a common worldview: the interconnectedness of all living things, connections to the land and community, the dynamic nature of the world and the strength of “power with rather than power over”.

In a peaceful and organic way the mentor and mentee will walk together, weaving the strands of their relationship like the fibers of sweetgrass to complete a beautiful braid of friendship, mentorship and community. 

The pairings can be any combination of Indigenous to Indigenous, or Indigenous to non Indigenous.

Applications open on September 25, 2023.
