The Indigenous Youth Culture Exchange (IYCE) is a participatory media project that aims to promote the mental health of indigenous youth by supporting culture and language use across Canada and the United States.
With a special focus on isolated communities, and those struggling with high rates of youth suicide, Intercontinental Cry intends to collaborate with a diverse range of tribally-run schools to provide students of any age with the freedom to share stories about their cultures and languages using any medium of their choosing.
IYCE will also help coordinate an annual culture camp video project under the leadership of each participating community.
Indigenous Peoples are putting their bodies on the line and it's our responsibility to make sure you know why. That takes time, expertise and resources - and we're up against a constant tide of misinformation and distorted coverage. By supporting IC you're empowering the kind of journalism we need, at the moment we need it most.
