Walking with Tribal Youth on Their Sacred Journey–What Do We Need to Embark on This Journey?
June 20 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
In recognition of Pride Month, the CoE LGBTQ+ BHE and the National American Indian and Alaska Native MHTTC will be hosting a special four-part webinar series on supporting Native LGBTQ+ and Two-Spirit youth! Join us every week in June to learn about the historical context of colonization that impacts Native youth, discover what tools and resources are available, gain strategies for supporting youth and their families, and hear from a lived experience panel.
Each session will begin and end with a breathing exercise and acknowledgment of attendees tending to their own spirit. Attendees are encouraged to attend all four sessions to embark upon this journey of learning together.
This webinar is Part 3 of a 4-Part Pride Month series: Walking with Tribal Youth on Their Sacred Journey. This session will focus on respecting the journey for Native LGBTQ+ and Two-Spirit youth and also for their families. For youth, becoming who they are is a sacred journey, and parent and family support is crucial. Parents may need support in working through grief or other complicated emotions in their journey to support their young person. Differences in western ideas of healing versus those used in tribal communities will be discussed, including ideas around supportive practices. Tools for supporting both youth and their parents will be shared, along with ways to educate friends and family on how to best support youth. The session will begin and end with a breathing exercise and acknowledgment of attendees tending to their own spirit. Attendees are encouraged to attend all four sessions to embark upon this journey of learning together.
