Âba wathtec.

we are the nakoda youth council.

We create opportunities for the Stoney Nakoda youth that ignite them to create a movement of change.

WE CHANGE THE PERSPECTIVE THAT OTHERS HAVE TOWARDS OUR YOUTH, AS WELL AS THE YOUTHS PERSPECTIVES OF THEMSELVES. 

WE WERE ESTABLISHED IN 2014, FOUNDED BY DARYL KOOTENAY & TARA BEAVER, ALONG WITH THE SUPPORT FROM CATHY ARCEGA.

Our goal is to be part of revitalizing our culture and bridging the gap between our youth and elders. Our group was formally made to guide, encourage and show the youth that they have a voice to be heard. 

Making a change not only for us, but for the next generation. 

empower

We help the youth of the Stoney Nakoda Nation feel empowered to be leaders, positive influences, and serve their community through relationships with the Youth council which lead to growth opportunities. 

leadership

Our mission is to create healthy opportunities for Stoney Nakoda youth leaders through the promotion of cultural values and beliefs; building youth development programs; and the fostering of healthy and collaborative relationships at a family, local, national & international level.

tradition

We know that traditional teachings promote mental, physical, spiritual and emotional well-being in youth development. Everyone is welcome and whoever you are is accepted.
