The Assembly of First Nations Quebec-Labrador (AFNQL) and the First Nations of Quebec-Labrador Youth Network (FNQLYN) are currently working together on the organization of a youth and elders gathering that will take place from July 11th to the 15th 2018, at the Centre Vacances Lac Simon, located in Saint-Léonard-de-Portneuf (http://www.vacanceslacsimon.com ), located one hour away from Quebec City.
This gathering will bring together young people and elders from all First Nations of Quebec and Labrador. The main theme will be Culture, with a particular focus placed on intergenerational transmission of knowledge and know-how.
At this point, in order to develop the programming of the gathering, we would like to request your recommendations for elders who might be interested and available to contribute to the gathering to facilitate cultural workshops with Youth. Their knowledge can be of various nature, and we are open to any suggestions, whether for techniques related to culinary preparation, for example the preparation and cooking of game meat, embroidery, legends or traditional knowledge on animals and plants.
For any information, or to provide suggestions, please contact Danny Robertson before April 15, 2018 at:
418 842-5020 Ext. 4003
Thank you for your collaboration!
