ABOUT US

The Connection (www.eaglespeaker.com) is dedicated to education, engagement and empowerment. Our mission is to model entrepreneurialism, advance creativity, build determination, enable cultural identity & pride, and promote community participation.


Engage, Empower, Evolve

Now in its 12th year! A unique free access program that aims to provide safe and healthy recreational activities and lifestyle choices to Native youth (and their families) - who are at increased risk of childhood obesity, diabetes, participation in gang-related activities, drug abuse, and suicide. Engage, Empower, Evolve aims to direct the popularity of contemporary activities among Native people towards essential life-long skills and positive physical and mental health benefits.

Grassroots Fundraising

The Connection combines community participation with graphic novels, comics, graphic art, photography and education to create our own unique culture.

Our hard hitting publications are used in government agencies, social service programs, school districts, post secondary institutions, corrections centers, substance abuse programs - you name it!

They've also been featured in countless media - including APTN National News, CBC International, Alberta Native News. New Tribe Magazine, Tsinnikksi and First Nations Drum.

Proceeds go directly into community programs.


Staff/Volunteers

The Connection is staffed by a group of dedicated staff and volunteers who donate their services, expertise, and limited financial resources to serve Native people. With no central office, full-time staff, marketing budget, or major financial support, we rely on our computers, cell phones, and a core team of dedicated grassroots writers, illustrators, youth, cultural advisors, and community professionals to produce unique programs and contemporary educational publications.
