Laura Forsythe was out for a walk at Bird’s Hill Provincial Park when she realized how much physical activity and movement were crucial for her mental health during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Knowing that promoting healthy movement could help our community, I decided to brainstorm with Antonina Kandurin and Taylor Tutkaluke, both Métis students in the Faculty of Kinesiology and Recreation Management, to help me actualize a movement initiative,” says Forsythe, the Métis inclusion coordinator at the Indigenous Student Centre at the University of Manitoba.
The first campaign, called Maaschiitak – or “let’s move” in Michif, launched in November and saw high participation.
