The First Nations Health Authority (FNHA) Mental Health and Wellness Photography Scavenger Hunt


Nurturing Wellness this ​​​Winter Equinox Season


​​The First Nations Health Authority (FNHA) is hosting a Mental Health and Wellness photography scavenger hunt for First Nations in BC. The second of four seasonal scavenger hunts has begun!

This winter's photography scavenger hunt is themed around the nurturing wellness during this winter equinox season. This scavenger hunt is meant to highlight what wholistic wellness, culture, and community look and feel like to you.

This is your opportunity to get creative and have fun. Therefore, there is no right or wrong way to demonstrate wholistic wellness in your photos.

Your mission, should you choose to accept, are to take photos of the following tasks:

  1. Winter activity on the land (i.e., snowshoeing, ice fishing, tobogganing/sledding, etc.)
  2. One way you will take care of your wellness this winter season.
  3. A significant place or person in your community that contributes to your wellbeing (i.e. place in nature, community centre, ceremonial hall/bighouse/longhouse, relative, elder, role model or leader in your community etc.).
  4. Your favorite winter (traditional) meal.
  5. Something you have harvested (i.e., medicines, tobacco, plants, food, furs, salves, etc.).
  6. Winter Feast/harvest and winter ceremony's, as appropriate.

Submit the photos and a small description of each photo you took to starting January 1, 2024 to March 1, 2024 and be entered to win a prize. The FNHA will select a few photos that demonstrates the scavenger hunt tasks list and highlights what wellness means from your perspective. We will be looking for creativity in your photos and each description you share.

We will highlight some of your excellent photo submissions on our social media!

Submission tips:

  • Include your name, and what Nation you are from.
  • Remember to include a short caption of what is happening in your photo submission.
  • Written stories (up to 500 words).

We love photos of BC First Nations communities being healthy, active, vibrant, and well. We look forward to seeing what wellness looks like to you! Good luck!
