Lisa Tallio – Director of Combining Our Strength™ and Minerva’s resident storyteller
The most profound way to create positive change in the world is by supporting opportunities for young Indigenous women.
Building the leadership potential of an Indigenous girl creates a ripple effect in her family and community as she passes on her wisdom.
Minerva’s mission is to celebrate and strengthen the voices of Indigenous women and girls in BC.
In 2017, we are launching Combining Our Strength™ Indigenous Roots, a unique program for 25 girls aged 13 to 19. Participants will increase their confidence through culturally-relevant leadership development and experiential outdoor learning. The pillars of the program allow participants to deepen their commitment to their communities, culture, land and themselves.
March – December, 2017
Workshops to take place mainly in Vancouver and outdoor activities to happen throughout Lower Mainland.
Nominations for Indigenous Roots have now been completed. Feel free to contact us if you would like any information. Nominations for 2018 will be open Fall 2017.
Indigenous Roots is a cost-free program thanks to the generous support of our sponsors.
