Bozoo – Indigenous cultural ways is about the gifts we all carry and having a good life throughout our journey - living it in full while welcoming the participation of all. Today’s conversation is about you and me, no matter who you are, where you come from or what you look like. You will hear stories from six different relatives who talk about their abilities, their challenges and their advocacy for inclusion in everyday life. Their stories will discuss this through their personal experiences and shared commitment to making a better life possible.a’hoo – hiy hiy
