MAKING A MEDICINE BAG
The Medicine Bag was traditionally used by the Shaman or Medicine Man to carry sacred herbs and objects that were believed to have healing powers. Although The Medicine Bag is still used today by many aboriginal people, it is also used by non-aboriginal people who wear it for good luck and/or spiritual purposes. It can be worn as a ‘necklace’ or under ones clothing directly against the skin.

Dorey Youth Advocacy Award
Recognizing youth for their achievements is a great way to build self-esteem; and more importantly, it establishes role models so others can see that their goals are tangible.
Understanding how important this is for our youth, the Congress of Aboriginal Peoples’ National Youth Council (NYC) established this unique awards program to honour and show appreciation to both achievements and advocacy.
