The little egg has hatched safely and the playful turtle is swimming free. This young sea turtle is taking its first swim into the deep ocean. Known for their ability to preserver through trials, the image of the young sea turtle carries the parallel message of our hope for our Indigenous children and youth to navigate safely and courageously through the deep oceans of life.
“My hope is that this image would stir inside each of us, the desire to see Indigenous young people nurtured and supported to reach their full potential and calling in our communities, nation and the world” – Safina Stewart.
