(Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory, Ont.) — The Youth Ambassador program is in its final week here at FNTI! Over the course of the month, 12 participants have taken part in cultural arts and crafts, teachings, nature walks, language sessions, singing, dancing and more.

“I am very happy to be a part of this program. Expanding my knowledge about my culture is important to me, and this program has helped me to achieve that,” said Bre Maracle, one of the program participants. “Being involved in my community, making drums, and learning the language has made me feel connected to my identity and native heritage. It has been a pleasure to be a part of this opportunity.”

“These four weeks I have definitely enjoyed myself. I have been able to learn many crafts and teachings that I would not have had the opportunity to learn if I hadn’t joined the program,” said Chevon Leween.

The Haudenosaunee Ambassador Program was made possible by the Ontario Trillium Foundation’s Youth Opportunities Fund (YOF) Grant.
