Thank you for making Still I Rise 2022 a success!

The idea for ‘Still I Rise’ initially came to be in December 2020, when an insightful EAS team member working primarily in the Treaty 8 region recognized the need for Indigenous youth to receive messages of hope, perseverance and resilience in a time of uncertainty. From there, the concept of a free virtual student event was born. This event set out to offer messages of inspiration from Indigenous influencers and friends from our Ever Active Schools community.

We are thrilled with the success of this event and excited to watch it grow and have a positive impact on a national level.
