Tsawout Training Session

Our Team travelled a short distance from the University of Victoria to the Tsawout Nation on Vancouver Island.  We witnessed the coming together of numerous energetic youth, ministry people, community agency workers and Tsawout band members.  The focus of attention was an opportunity for relationship and skill building as we re-story, re-name and re-claim RESEARCH.

Some of the hot topics included story-telling and the significance to the indigenous way of living.  The youth stole the show as they told their stories of success within the realm of sports, more specifically -how to use lessons learned in Lacrosse to better one’s life outside of sports.
