NCFST is a multi-service Indigenous agency that provides a holistic, culture-based approach to programs and services that provide a life of quality and healing for Indigenous families in the Greater Toronto Area. The Rites of Passage Project will build the cultural knowledge of urban Indigenous youth by providing them with a unique opportunity to participate in on-the-land programs at Glen Rouge Park, including week-long sessions focused on community building. Youth will be guided through activities grounded in cultural teachings and ceremonies and geared to their personal journeys, designed to help them explore their place in the historically significant land around the Rouge Valley. Activities will include fire keeping, naming, sweat lodge ceremony, and drum making.
This is an outstanding city.
