Sexual health is for everyone! We all have sexual health. And just like our physical health and mental health, sexual health is an important aspect of our overall wellbeing. It’s connected to more than just pregnancy or sexually transmitted infections – sexual health includes things like how we feel about our bodies, consent, social relationships, pleasure, who we’re attracted to, and more!

Since sexual health is connected to so many things, there’s almost no limit to who can participate in sharing sexual health supports in our communities! Siksika’s Sexual Health Team champions this work through programs and services offered (see more in the tabs below), and providing resources to Siksika Nation to improve sexual health outcomes so we can all live fuller, healthier, and happier lives.

In the distant past, concepts of sex and sexual health weren’t taboo like they are now. People saw sex as an important part of being healthy. Learning about our bodies was a normal part of education, and many Indigenous groups still celebrate ceremonies that mark the transition from being a kid to being an adult. These ceremonies are a way to honor this change and the new responsibilities that come with growing up.
