The Necessity of Breaking Taboos
I think it is so important that we start to help, strengthen and educate us Indigenous youth: to help break this cycle that has been going on since colonization. In our history, we have always been degraded, but we are incredibly strong young people. We are people who are extremely proud of our country, of who we are, and of our culture. We want to show that to the world. Every day, I see more and more young Indigenous people being proud of who they are and trying to learn parts of our culture that have been lost. I think this is beautiful because wanting to take back our culture and feeling pride in our culture is starting to bring us closer as a community and as Indigenous young people.
