Feathers of Hope: A First Nations Youth Action Plan
The Feathers of Hope report by Ontario's advocate for children and youth is calling for a five-year plan to address the needs and difficulties facing aboriginal young people. The report was released in February 2014 and urges governments of all levels to make northern remote and fly-in First Nations communities safer and healthier.
The report came out of meetings in 2013 involving more than 160 aboriginal youth from 64 communities. It touches on the lingering effects of residential schools, culture, education, youth suicide, physical and mental health, and drug and alcohol abuse.
