This map presents the weaving, or confluence, of Indigenous youth’s stories in Tiohtiá:ke/Moonyiang. Just as multiple beads are assembled in a beading project, their individual stories come together to recount a collective perspective on Indigenous experiences in the city.

First, click on the button below to activate the map, then click on the buttons on the flowers and their petals to listen to the excerpts. Please note that these audio samples have been recorded in the chosen language of each participant; some are in French and others in English.
