Beadwork & Wellness – January 2020

SHIELD co-hosted this event with Empowering Indigenous Women for Stronger Communities in Goose Bay for individuals ages 12-18. Youth artist Mckenzie Dyson & mentor Patti Maloney co-facilitated this wonderful workshop that combined learning beadwork techniques with wellness presentations held by DeeDee Voisey, Karyn Hopkins & Denise Cole. We talked about sexual health, self-care & mental health while learning about the cultural roots of beading, which also encourages wellbeing. Thank you to all the youth who attended, facilitators & College of the North Atlantic.
