The ‘We Matter Campaign‘ is coming back to Denendeh where its founders are from. The social media campaign dedicated to sending positive messages to Indigenous youth at risk started last fall.

Deninu Kue Wellness Coordinator Carol-Ann Chaplin says it’s the second time Tunchai and Kalvin Redvers have been in Fort Resolution to talk with youth about some difficult topics.

“It’s especially for those who are experiencing loneliness, depression, who may be suicidal or who might be just sorta lost in their life,” said Chaplin.

A community presentation will happen tonight in Fort Resolution at the Antoine Beaulieu building from 7-9pm. Youth Workshops will be held at the Mission Island cabins on Saturday.

“We paired up with Katlodeeche First Nation, to bring them up North,” added Chaplin. Both facilitators grew up in Hay River.

Kalvin and Tunchai will start another session on Monday at the Chief Sunrise School, focusing on “Finding Strength and Hope,” and creating ‘We matter’ messages on Tuesday.

They will wrap up their visit with a community session at the Chief Lamalice Centre Tuesday evening from 7 – 8:30pm.
