Victoria Native Friendship Centre

Peppermint Toast Publishing is pleased to be in partnership with the Victoria Native Friendship Centre for the release of the books, I Was Born Precious And Sacred and I Know I Am Precious And Sacred. These read-aloud children’s books are simple and beautiful, acknowledging and honouring the ancestral teaching of how every child is born as a precious and sacred body, spirit, mind and heart.

The Victoria Native Friendship Centre is located within the traditional land of the Lekwammen People, known today as the Songhees Nation and Esquimalt Nation, in the heart of Victoria, British Columbia. It offers community, support, training and networking in a safe environment that helps Aboriginal people to better maneuver in the urban setting. It has become a vital resource for urban Aboriginal individuals and families from diverse cultures, and is strategically positioned to play a major role in the development and implementation of urban Aboriginal governance on southern Vancouver Island.

The Victoria Native Friendship Centre is a non-profit organization whose mandate is “to encourage and promote the well-being of Urban Aboriginal People, by strengthening individuals, family, and community.” Please visit their website to learn about their ongoing programs, services, and community events.
