Over the past decade, the Indigenous Youth Mountain Bike Program has worked with dozens of First Nations throughout British Columbia, training youth to build trails and supporting efforts to use those trails to reconnect people to the land and assert Indigenous Rights and Title. A central goal has been to engage with the mountain bike community and encourage settler Canadians to evaluate our relationship with recreation and how it impacts and perpetuates colonial structures and institutions.
Co-Founder and Director Patrick Lucas and Tom Eustache of the Simpcw First Nation will share their lessons learned from working together and building trails in an upcoming webinar titled “The Importance of Decolonizing Trails.” We strongly encourage everyone available to join us and listen in.
