Firekeepers Youth Program

The Firekeepers Youth Program offers enrichment opportunities that promote the health and development of Native American youth ages 12-18 within an indigenous context. The program teaches Native youth what it means to “keep the fire” of our cultures and our people and how to live mno bmadzewen, a good life, in the traditional Native American worldview. We align this instruction to the Seven Grandfather Teachings of Anishinaabe tradition: love, honesty, respect, bravery, humility, wisdom, and truth. This community-based program will include a combination of monthly meetings, special programs, social gatherings, cultural activities, community service, and educational field trips for Native American youth and their peers.
