Boys with Braids

March 23, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Boys with Braids is a gathering to share teachings about the sacredness of hair, to foster a sense of pride for boys who choose to grow their hair long and using education as a means of interrupting teasing, bullying and harassment.

Who should come: boys, youth, men and elders with long hair, all future and former long-haired men and boys, friends, family, supporters, teachers, social workers, coaches, leaders and anyone else with a desire to learn.

Endorsed by Boys with Braids Saskatoon creator Michael Linklater, a father who was tired of hearing his children’s experiences of teasing, bullying and harassment from other kids, teachers, coaches, salespeople, serving personnel and other adults in their children’s lives. As these were the same issues he faced as a braid-wearing boy he opted to have an educational gathering for boys with braids.

Please join us at our very first Boys with Braids Regina event at 6 pm, March 23th, 2016 at the Teacher Preparation Centre (TPC) located on the 2nd floor of the Education Building, University of Regina, 3737 Wascana Parkway, Regina SK.

Special youth guest: Isaiah Tootoosis, co-star The Revenant

Hosts of this event include: EPSY 217 (Peyahtak-wihtamowin), The faculty of Education University of Regina, the Education Student Society, the Office of Indiginization University of Regina and Regina Public and special thanks to Boys with Braids Winnipeg for their guidance and support.
