YOUth Matters by Mary Chocolate

This summer I attended a week-long youth conference in Inuvik called YOUth Matters. During the week we participated in different workshops. The workshops that stood out for me were learning about tobacco/smoking, self harm, and suicide prevention.
After the conference we would do activities, like 3-on-3 basketball. We also made beaded earrings, played ping-pong, and practiced yoga, among other things. The final night we were there we had an old timers folk dance and it was so fun! A lot of people from Inuvik came and a lot of people danced. By the way, the food was also incredibly delicious!
I really appreciate the time and effort the members of GTC (Gwich'in Tribal Council) took to make this conference happen.
I would 100% recommend participating in this conference!
