Anishinaabek Youth

This grassroots initiative, known as “The Mnidoo-Gamii/Georgian Bay Anishinaabeg Youth Initiative”, is led by Indigenous Youth for Indigenous youth. Grounded in cyclical and wholistic Anishinaabeg aadziwin and gikendaaswin (also known as land-based education/traditional ecological knowledge – TEK), the focus is to create safe spaces for Indigenous youth to build strong community and cultural connections on the Eastern shore of Mnidoo-Gamii.

The Mnidoo-Gamii Anishinaabek Youth strive to empower mno bmaadziwin, the good life, through mentorship, capacity building, and land-based experiential learning.

The multitude of projects, programming and partnerships of the initiative are examples of strengthening and flourishing Indigenous innovation – Anishinaabek aadziwin and gikdendaaswin. In an era of reconciliation, it is necessary for Indigenous youth to see their realities as protectors and stewards of the land, reflected throughout Mnidoo-Gamii. It is a human right for Anishinabek youth to be Anishinabek.
