Young Indigenous Queers Retreat – Coalition to Stop Violence Against Native Women
August 3, 2018 - August 4, 2018
Young Indigenous Queers Retreat (YIQR) will take a place on August 3rd and 4th at the Native American Community Academy Church at 1000 Indian School Rd NW, Albuquerque, NM 87104. We invite Indigenous gender-queer youth between the ages of 16-25 years old to our YIQR to strategize on how break the cycle of violence amongst our women, children, and LGBTQ2S+ populations in tribal communities. We will focus on the resiliency of our Indigenous woman and LGBTQ2S+ people. It is our hope that the participants of our workshop will come away feeling supported, encouraged, and reenergized to continue to work towards youth-centered organizing and activism within their own Indigenous Nations. Our hope with the Young Indigenous Queers Retreat is to create a space where critical dialogues can occur in an environment that fosters these conversations and actions in addition to holding space for a needed debriefing on trauma and healing.
