Cultural Programming

Young Star House strives to reunite children with their culture to match their interest and their goals. As such we provide regular access to an Elder, and cultural ceremonies and activities both within the home and within the community. We participate in several local pow-wows, some sweat lodges, smudging, drumming, cultural food preparations, crafts and visits to the Kah-Nah-Chi-Wah-Nung cultural centre.

Additionally, we have partnered with community resources within the United Native Friendship Centre to provide access to the “Street Wolf” program. This program approaches various societal issues through a First Nations cultural worldview. This eight week program is conducted periodically to assure a cultural therapeutic component is available in addition to our regular cultural programs.

drumNew Update: Young Star House had a pow-wow drum crafted for our program. It is a comfortable 24 inches in diameter and a hefty 14 inches deep for a solid, deep-toned and robust sound.

We are looking into working with local drummers to have our children learn some traditional songs with the eventual goal of participating in local pow-wows as a drumming team. We believe that not only should our children watch and observe their culture, they should take ownership and become active participants in their culture.
