Opening up about Indigenous intimacy

Conversations about love and sex among young Indigenous people are often held behind closed doors, at kitchen tables or on the powwow trail. We want to bring those conversations out into the open.

This week, we are delving deep into uncharted territory and taking you to the sultry side of the Indigenous world. Conversations about love and sex among youth are often held behind closed doors, at kitchen tables or on the powwow trail. 

We want to bring those conversations out into the open. All three of our guests this week are young poets — and they are getting real about dating, intimacy, and the importance for Indigenous youth to talk about love and sex.
