Boys with Braids is a gathering to share teachings about the sacredness of hair, to foster a sense of pride for boys who choose to grow their hair long and using education to stop teasing, bullying and harassment. 

Endorsed by Boys with Braids Saskatoon creator Michael Linklater, a father who was tired of hearing his children's experiences. As these were the same issues he’d faced as a braid-wearing boy he opted to have an educational gathering.
