We gratefully acknowledge the financial support of the Province of British Columbia through the Ministry of Aboriginal Relations and Reconciliation, the Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development and the BC Public Service Agency.

We would also like to thank the Aboriginal Youth Internship Program, the Canadian Human Rights Commission - Promotion Branch, Vancity, Sacred Fire Foundation, the University of Victoria’s Indigenous Governance Program, the UBC First Nations House of Learning and the Museum of Anthropology.
And last, but not least, thank you to our working group of Indigenous young leaders, our wonderful and generous volunteers and our little team, Sarah Boivin and Morgan Mowatt. We couldn’t have done it without you!
