The Thunderbird Partnership Foundation is proud to be standing shoulder to shoulder with NationTalk in their production of the Indigenous Healing Our People Everywhere – iHope Benefit Concert 2016. We join our partners, Canadian Foundation for Healthcare Improvement and the First Nations Health Manager’s Association working to bring worldwide awareness to suicide prevention through messages of Indigenous resilience, life promotion and reconciliation.
The facts are staggering; the suicide rate for Indigenous peoples is five to seven times higher than it is for other Canadians. iHope will shine a light on life promotion. Let’s contribute to the shared message of hope on November 17th, 2016 at the historic Vogue Theater in Vancouver.
Music can be healing, and music will bring our nations together in celebration. Join us for this musical event! The iHope Benefit Concert 2016 hosted by Carla Robinson will feature international Indigenous performers including Buffy Sainte-Marie, Susan Aglukark and Andrea Menard, with special performances by Coastal Wolfpack and Murray Porter.
Any proceeds after costs will be donated to the Thunderbird Partnership Foundation, to sponsor Indigenous youth leaders who are interested in learning how to provide mental wellness support in their communities. The training will be provided by Thunderbird.
