“I find that no matter where you are, or which country you may be in, every culture is fighting to keep their culture alive.”
These are the beautiful words of 25-year-old Phylicia Kagyut, one of the Indigenous youth interns who participated in our International Internships for Indigenous Youth program in 2019. Phylicia travelled from her home of Ulukhaktok, NT to Costa Rica, where she lived and worked for 4 months at a youth centre.
Phylicia was interviewed on camera about her experience by the Inuvialuit Communications Society — in the clip, Phylicia shares some of her biggest takeaways from the experience.
