This workshop creates a safe and supportive space where Indigenous people on our campus can come together and partake in a beading workshop.

The event will be led by Denica Bleu, a Métis beader, and certified trauma therapist. This will be a space where participants can create a community within each other while partaking in a traditional activity. The month of SAAM can be heavy and this is an event where you can decompress and take space for yourself and your healing journey. Denica will lead the group through beading a lanyard using peyote stitch, we will meet two seperate times with the aim for you to complete a lanyard to take home by the end.

The materials are free and will be provided by SVPRO at the time of the event, we also welcome any materials you may want to bring of your own. We look forward to decompressing after SAAM and creating a healing space with you!

Open to Indigenous students, staff, and faculty only.

This event is hosted as a part of Sexual Assault Awareness Month at UBC.
