“Lives We Live” as part of World AIDS Day, presented by InSA – Dec 1, 2014

The Indigenous Students’ Association (InSA) would like to invite you their event “Lives We Live”.   December 1st is World AIDS Day and the start of Aboriginal AIDS Awareness Week (December 1-6th). InSA will be hosting an Aboriginal HIV/AIDS Awareness Day held in Sty-Wet-Tan Hall in the First Nations Longhouse on the UBC campus.  This event will include an information session and a candle light vigil.

1. Information Tables: Organizations such as the Canadian Aboriginal AIDS Network, Red Road HIV/AIDS Network Society, Vancouver Native Health, Northern Task Force, and the Vancouver Infectious Disease Clinic will be present at this event to share information such as Best Practices within BC First Nations’ communities, educate on HIV/AIDS and other blood borne pathogens relevant to those with HIV/AIDS, and bring awareness of the changes that research and their organizations have made on the lives of those living with HIV/AIDS.

2. Candle Light Vigil: To honor those who have gone to be with their ancestors and to honor the commitment of those who have stood beside them in their battle, we will hold a candle light vigil, hear a story from Sandy Lambert (an APHA), and listen to hand-drum songs.

Where: First Nations Longhouse, 1985 West Mall

When: Monday December 1st. Information session from 12-4pm. Candle Light Vigil ceremony 5-6pm
