Another year is upon us, and a new batch of Red Road Community Leaders are ready to embark on their journey in harmony with the Creator. For five years the Red Road Project has hired Community Leaders based on each reservation to work alongside youth in the community to provide fun, and healthy activities for children to participate in. So far, the leaders have been conducting a number of activities in attempt to engage kids of all ages, such as cultural workshops, canoeing, talking circles, and day trips.
