Ecko Aleck (Kawaya7) is offering a safe space for those working through the Intergenerational traumas of colonization and residential schools. She is a mother of two and daughter of a residential school survivor. She sees the importance of creating sacred space in order for healing to take place. The Hetth’um tent offers art therapy through painting, writing, drawing and music. There are also the options to smudge or brush with cedar. This is a culturally and spiritually safe place.
During this time of cultural crisis, the issues we are faced with are often brought forward in our hearts up at Koksilah, such as grief, loss, anxiety, fear, and anger. This can be a lot for our bodies and hearts to process. Culturally we are in need of transformation and it is important that we have resources to support our healing, growth, and liberation. Passage Wellness & Acupuncture is here hosting a booth and will be offering treatments by donation in support of the Unist’ot’en and Hiiye’yu Lelum Society Youth Inclusion Project. As well, Jenica, Mati, and Jaay will be around the booth to discuss what communities of resilience and care look like and how we can collectively cultivate this together. Come by and say hello!
