Indigenous speaker came to talk with the YCCBC Kamloops crew
Miranda Dick is an Indigenous Enviromentalist who belongs to the Secwépemc Nation. Miranda is the 1st of many Indigenous guest speakers for the Kamloops YCCBC Cohort. Miranda spent the morning educating and speaking with the youth about the importance of the five key units (Housing, Food, Water, People, and Media) and the interconnectedness of the ecosystem within both species of Humans and Animals. Miranda discussed the impacts of displacements in each unit and how it all relates back to Water. YCCBC Kamloops was grateful for her to share her knowledge and showing us ways to give back and advocate for mother earth.
