IICRD's Chancellor Amos - Featured in Ha-Shilth-Sa

IICRD's Chancellor Amos is featured in Ha-Shilth-Sa - Canada's oldest First Nation paper. The article "EHATTESAHT MAN HOPES TO CREATE HIS OWN SUMMER JOB" was featured on April 12, 2017.

The article discusses how Chancellor "led a group of a half a dozen adults on a group ride through some trails on Mount Tzouhalem. As he was planning to do with the Indigenous youth, Amos took time during the ride to explain the cultural and historical significance of riding on Indigenous land."

He wants to get young people away from their modern technologies through mountain biking. He believes that "the whole idea is to bring back that element of getting back on the land and having fun”. 

Chancellor plays a key role in working with Indigenous youth workers through IICRD's YouLEAD initiative. 

Imagine a world where we build on the core strengths of children, their families, and communities, to create dignity, belonging, and justice for all.
