Empowering Indigenous children and youth to a brighter future.

Supporting through innovative education and our Indigenous way of knowing.


Yotuni Charitable Initiative is here to offer innovations through solutions and strategies to heal and take care of the communities that we love and call home. Indigenous wellness represents being in balance with self, family, community and the wider environment. We invest in families, as they play a key role in helping individuals regain a sense of balance.

Yotuni C.I provides camps, training, jobs and services to colonized, underprivileged Indigenous children and youth impacting awareness, education, and prevention. Improving well-being, healing and growth mentally, emotionally, physically and Spiritually.

With working together, professionalism and our Indigenous cultures, medicines and ceremonies we impact awareness and understanding on various Indigenous issues in mental and physical health and connections to culture, ceremonies, language, healing, communities, change and growth.


Truth Empowering Nations Project

T.E.N aims to impact the justice, child welfare and educational systems with methods and teachings that promote prevention, healing, change and growth. Based on the lived experiences and truth of the Indigenous youth of the past and present, Yotuni C.I and T.E.N's awareness, content, teachings and perspectives help the youth of today walk their paths balanced mentally, emotionally, physically and Spiritually. Creating more mindful leaders and pillars in our communities.

Yeyatase “Be Pretty” Girls Leadership Project

The Yeyatase Project helps participants create their own safe space to protect their bodies, minds and Spirits while reconnecting them with Mother Earth and all of creation.  Learning their traditional roles and responsibilities, participants re-root themselves with who they are as Indigenous girls and women today.  We help empower girls and women through traditional teachings, ceremonies and community events..  In return this creates positive ripple effects on our children, youth, People, families and communities.

Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG) is a huge crisis happening in all our Indigenous communities and major cities, including London, ON.   Our Indigenous girls and women are targets of attacks, abuse, human trafficking, and violent assaults usually leading to murder.  This is our harsh truth of our past, present and future if changes do not happen today. Yeyatase provides education, healing and wellness creating resilient, mindful girl and women leaders.
