Project: Hazhǫ Ełexè Łets’eèzhe (We Are All Connected)

What is Hazhǫ Ełexè Łets’eèzhe? 

Hazhǫ Ełexè Łets’eèzhe is centered around empowering and engaging youth in Yellowknife to take the lead in collective action planning, decision-making and community innovation.  Mary Rose Sunberg from the Yellowknives Dene First Nation, translates “Hazhǫ Ełexè Łets’eèzhe” from Wıılııdeh to English to mean “we all grow together” or that “we are all connected.”  This project will utilize a strength-based approach to raise awareness of multiple intelligences and that we all have gifts to share through:

  • A Youth Advisory Committee 

  • Campfire Chats featuring Art, Culture and Wellness-Based Activities

  • Human Library and Art Events​

 

This project is a Community Innovation Fund Project part of Communities Building Youth Futures Yellowknife funded by Tamarack Institute and the Government of Canada.
